SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) Gene Sauers took the Boeing Classic lead Saturday, two weeks after his breakthrough victory in the U.S. Senior Open.

The 54-year-old Sauers two-putted for birdie on the par-5 18th for a 5-under 67 and a two-stroke lead over Joe Durant. The three-time PGA Tour winner had a 12-under 132 total at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.

"I just concentrated on hitting the ball solid, trying to keep it in the fairways and give myself opportunities just like I try to do every week," Sauers said. "I had opportunities to make the putts and I made a few today, missed a few. I made a couple of stupid bogeys."
