Colin Montgomerie leads by a shot at Champion Tours event

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — Colin Montgomerie overcame a double bogey to shoot his second straight 6-under 66, holding onto a one-stroke lead after two rounds of the ACE Group Classic at TwinEagles Golf Club on Saturday.

Montgomerie birdied four of his last six holes and is 12-under 132 for the tournament. Lee Janzen also had a double bogey but shot a 7-under 65 and is one back at 11 under.

Esteban Toledo and Scott Dunlap are both at 8-under 136. Three other players are 7 under, including Bernhard Langer, who won five tournaments in 2014 as well as 18 top-10 finishes.

Montgomerie birdied on Nos. 2, 3, 6 and 7 before faltering for a double bogey on No. 9. Janzen’s double bogey came on the seventh hole. He birdied his first three holes as well as Nos. 6, 9, 12, 13, 16 and 17.

Paul Goydos, who won The Allianz Championship last week in Boca Raton, Fla., is at 5-under after a 70. Kirk Triplett, the 2014 ACE Group Classic victor, is at 4-under after a 72.
