MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Paul Broadhurst shot a 3-under 69 in windy conditions Saturday at University Ridge to maintain a two-stroke lead in the PGA Tour Champions’ American Family Insurance Open.
Broadhurst followed birdies on the par-5 16th and par-3 17th with a bogey on the par-4 18th to finish at 12-under 132.
“It was a tougher day today with the wind,” Broadhurst said. “I kept plugging away, really. … I hit a poor driver on 18. There’s plenty of room right and I toed over underneath the trunk and it cost me a bogey. I’m still two ahead, so got to be happy.”
The 51-year-old Englishman opened with a 63. He won the Senior British Open and PURE Insurance Championship last year.
“There’s no magic to think about,” Broadhurst said. “It’s just try and get some rest if you can and come out and hope the game’s in good shape tomorrow. … The rhythm went a little bit with the wind. It always does. I find it difficult to keep the rhythm smooth when it’s really windy. I know what the problem is, so I can fix it for tomorrow.”
Lee Janzen and Scott Verplank were tied for second. They each shot 66.
