IRVING, Texas — Brendon Todd birdied his final two holes Friday to take a two-stroke lead after two rounds at the Byron Nelson Championship.

The birdies at Nos. 17 and 18 wrapped up a 6-under-par 64 and put Todd alone atop the crowded leaderboard at 8-under 132. Among eight players at 6 under were Martin Kaymer, The Players Championship winner Sunday, and Paul Casey after his record back nine.

Casey was over par before matching the PGA Tour record for the best score on a back nine, an 8-under 27 with six birdies and an eagle. That was part of his 7-under 63 that was the low round of the day.

Former Husky Alex Prugh (71) was tied for 25th at 2-under 138. Kyle Stanley (66) from Gig Harbor and Michael Putnam (70) from University Place were tied for 52nd at even-par 140.

Ryan Moore (74) from Puyallup and former Husky Richard H. Lee (72) missed the cut.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Mark Calcavecchia made an 8-foot birdie putt on the final hole to take a one-stroke lead over Jay Haas after the second round of the Regions Tradition at Shoal Creek.

Calcavecchia shot his second straight 3-under 69 to reach 6 under, while Haas had a 70 after they came in as part of a four-way tie at the Champions Tour major. Haas missed a 4-footer on No. 18.

Seattle native Fred Couples (77) and Rick Fehr (82) from Redmond were far down the leaderboard.
