RENO, Nev. (AP) - John Rollins used a birdie-birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie stretch to tie the course record with a 62 and take the early second-round lead in the clubhouse at 12-under-par 132 Friday at the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open.

Rollins hit his second shot 284 yards to the green and made the 34-foot putt for eagle on the 616-yard, par-5 ninth to shoot a 30 on the front side at the Montreux Golf & Country Club.

He continued his streak with a 14-foot birdie putt on No. 10 then settled for birdie on the par-5 11th when he missed an eagle attempt from 9 feet. He got up and down from a bunker for a birdie on the par-5 17th and closed with a 22-footer for his eighth birdie of the day.

Bill Glasson set the record in 2005 and defending champ Parker McLachlin tied it last year.
