Dan Forsman had six back-nine birdies for a 7-under 65 and a two-stroke lead Saturday after the second round of the Champions Tour's season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship.
Forsman, a two-time winner on the 50-and-over tour, had a 12-under 132 total at Hualalai Resort.
Brad Bryant had the day's low round, an 8-under 64, to match 2010 champion Tom Watson (65) and Jeff Sluman (66) at 10 under.
Forsman was back in the pack after playing the front nine in 35. He birdied the first two holes on the back nine, pitching to a foot at No. 10 and hitting a round-changing approach shot to No. 11.
''The shot of the day had to be my second shot at 11,'' Forsman said. ''I hit a 5-iron 185 yards from a gnarly, rough lie and chased it to the back edge of the green. I knocked in an 8-footer for birdie. That shot could have gone anywhere. It could have been long, over, behind the green in a bunker, right or left, but I got the three and it was a super boost to my round.
It got me thinkin...
