RENO, Nev. (AP) -- John Rollins matched the course record with a 10-under 62 to take a two-stroke lead in the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open, and Chris Riley tied the PGA Tour mark for relation to par for nine holes with 9-under 27.
Rollins, who had a birdie-birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie run, had a 12-under 132 total -- leaving him two strokes ahead of 2003 PGA champion Shaun Micheel, who followed an opening 69 with a bogey-free 65 on Friday at Montreux Golf and Country Club.
Riley went on his own birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie-birdie streak to reach 7 under through seven holes. He chipped in from 24 feet for his second eagle of the day on the par-5 ninth before starting the back nine with consecutive bogeys. He finished with a 64, leaving him tied for third at 8 under.
Augusta's Vaughn Taylor fired a three under 69 and sits at -7 for the tournament. Taylor has won this even twice.
