NAPLES, Fla., Dec. 10 (UPI) -- The pairing of PGA Champion Keegan Bradley and Brendan Steele Saturday grabbed a one-shot lead after two rounds of the Franklin Templeton Shootout.

The duo teamed for a 10-under 62 on the Gold Course at Tiburon Golf Club, finishing at 19-under 125, one stroke clear of seniors tour pair Mark Calcavecchia and Nick Price.

Calcavecchia and Price bounced back from a rough start to combine for a 9-under 63, holding second at minus-18. Both pairs will be back for Sunday's final round.

The double-rookie team of Bradley and Steele accounted for three PGA Tour wins this year, while each member of the seniors duo have logged Champions Tour victories this season as well.

Taking sole possession of third one shot further back were Rory Sabbatini and Jhonattan Vegas with Saturday's lowest round -- a 12-under 60.
