The second round is under way at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, and Tom Lehman is rising to the top of two leaderboards.
Lehman, a Scottsdale, Ariz., resident, made three straight birdies from Nos. 5-7 at Desert Mountain’s Cochise Course to get to 5 under and the lead, alongside Jay Haas and Gary Hallberg.
Bernhard Langer is currently tied for 10th at 3 under, which means that Lehman projects to No. 1 in the Schwab Cup. Langer came into the event 211 points ahead of Lehman, but with double points available at the season finale, the Cup is still up for grabs.
Lehman is gunning to be the first back-to-back winner of the $1 million prize.
First-round leader Jay Don Blake has backed up a bit with two bogeys in his first three holes. He’s at 4 under.
