Langer in Lead on Champions Tour

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - Bernhard Langer holed out from the fairway for an eagle on the par-4 10th and finished with a 10-under 62 on Friday to take a three-stroke in the Champions Tour's ACE Group Classic.

Langer had three birdies on the front nine on TwinEagles' Talon Course, then played the back nine in 7-under 29 with the eagle and five birdies - including four in a row on Nos. 13-16.

The 55-year-old German star, a 16-time winner on the 50-and-over tour, won the event in 2011 at The Quarry.

Bob Tway was second after a 65, and Tom Pernice Jr., Jay Don Blake and John Huston shot 66.

Light rain fell throughout the morning, with a brief heavier shower. A cold front was expected to come through Saturday and kick up wind to 15 to 20 mph with high temperatures in the low 60s.
