On a wild second day at the 2012 U.S. Senior Open Championship, it was Lance Ten Broeck who took a one-stroke lead into the weekend over a bevy of notable contenders.
Ten Broeck, who actually served as a caddie after his PGA days before joining the senior tour, carded a pair of 34's on both the front and back nines to move to 6-under for the championship. The 56-year-old has done an impressive job of using his length to his advantage thus far, and is 5-under on par fives over the first two days.
First-round leader Tom Kite looked to be well on his way towards running away with the 36-hole lead, but shot an unprecedented 4-over on the same front nine track that he dominated for a 7-under 28 a day earlier. Kite's late day stumble (he finished with an even par 70) still only puts him one stroke away from Ten Broeck and the pace, but clearly spoiled a chance for the veteran's second straight day in red numbers.
Looming at 4-under sits a group of six men that includes notable names like Tom Lehman, Corey Pavin and Bernhard Langer. Lehman, who entered Friday's round five strokes off the pace, carded a 66 in his second round for the second lowest score of the day, behind only Jay Don Blake's 65.
