Leaders struggling at Liberty Mutual

SAVANNAH, Ga. -- The final groups on Sunday always have a bit of an advantage at the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf, seeing leaderboards and knowing exactly what they need to do.

But if they're watching right now, they'll find they have a lot to do.

A gaggle of teams that began a few shots back have got to 21 under midway through their second nines, such as the teams of Fred Couples/Jay Haas, Larry Mize/Hal Sutton and Steve Elkington/Rocco Mediate, while the leaders haven't made any noise early.

Second-round leaders Jay Don Blake and Roger Chapman made the turn at even par, with one bogey and one birdie, still at the 17 under number where they began the day. Their partners in the final group, Jim Gallagher Jr. and Scott Hoch, are just 2 under through nine holes (18 under), with a bogey on the ninth.

Tom Lehman and Bernhard Langer, the 2009 champions that figured to be in the mix on Sunday, are only 1 under through 10 holes and 17 under overall.

Lehman speculated on Saturday that there could be a 59 or 60 at The Club at Savannah Harbor in the final round, but that is appearing unlikely. What's more likely may be a playoff.
