ST. LOUIS (AP) - Russ Cochran and Kenny Perry each shot 5-under 66 on Friday to share the second round lead in the Senior PGA Championship.

The longtime Kentucky friends were 7 under at Bellerive Country Club in the major championship. They will play together for the third straight day Saturday.

Japan's Kiyoshi Murota was two strokes back after a 70. Jay Haas and Duffy Waldorf, tied for the lead after the first round, matched Loren Roberts at 4 under. Roberts had a 68, and Haas and Waldorf shot 72.

The 54-year-old Cochran tied for seventh in the 1992 PGA Championship at Bellerive. The left-hander began play on the back nine and had five birdies in a span of six holes, peaking at 8 under before a bogey on No. 6.

The 52-year-old Perry had five birdies in a bogey-free round.
