NAPLES, Fla., Dec. 8 (UPI) -- The team of Kenny Perry and Sean O'Hair grabbed a two-stroke lead at the Franklin Templeton Shootout Saturday after firing a combined 11-under 61.

Perry is seeking his third career victory at the shootout event, after having won it with John Huston in 2005 and with Scott Hoch in 2008.

He and O'Hair ended the second round at 19-under-par 125 -- two better than the duo of U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III and Brandt Snedeker, who combined for a 7-under 65.

Three other teams were tied for third place after 36 holes on the Gold Course at Tiburon Golf Club.

Carl Pettersson and Stewart Cink turned in a round of 10-under 62 to end four shots off the pace at minus-15, knotting with the tandems of Charles Howell III-Rory Sabbatini and Jason Dufner-Vijay Singh (both 9-under 63).
