Early groups going low in Savannah

SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Only one team got to 10 under in the first round at the breezy Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf, but calmer conditions on Saturday could help some early teams to go even lower.

The team of Peter Jacobsen/D.A. Weibring began the day four shots behind the pace set in Round 1 by Brad Faxon and Jeff Sluman, but moved to the top in the early going of Round 2. The team shot 29 on the back nine (starting on No. 10) and added a birdie at No. 2 to get to 14 under.

Scott Hoch and Jim Gallagher Jr. also started on No. 10 and shot 29 on the back nine, and are at 13 under in the better-ball format.

Faxon and Sluman birdied two of their first five holes and are at 12 under, tied with several teams including Bernhard Langer/Tom Lehman, the 2009 champions and the favorites coming into the week based on Langer's hot play this season.

The duo of 63-year-olds, Andy North and Tom Watson, didn't make a par until the sixth hole in Round 2. They birdied the first two, bogeyed No. 3, then birdied the next two holes. They are three shots back at 11 under.
