CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Bob Tway shot a 7-under 63 on Saturday for a share of the second-round lead with Joe Durant and Joe Daley in the Champions Tour's Shaw Charity Classic.

Durant and Daley shot 68 to match Tway at 10-under 130 at Canyon Meadows.

The 55-year-old Tway had an eagle, seven birdies and two bogeys.

"I putted very well today — probably the best I've putted in 20-something years, so it was kind of fun," Tway said "The greens are some of the nicest greens I've ever putted on. If you hit a good putt, they're going in. Guys are making putts from everywhere."

He's winless on the 50-and-over tour after winning eight times on the PGA Tour, including the 1986 PGA Championship.

"I know I can play better than I have," Tway said. "I haven't done it, but I keep trying to do it. If I just keep enjoying it, then it doesn't really matter. I fully should play a lot better than I play, but I haven't. You either keep working at it or go home and I'm going to keep working at it."

Durant is making his eighth Champions Tour start since turning 50 in April. He also has three top-25 finishes this season in 15 PGA Tour starts.

"I know there's three of us tied, but by the time we get on the first hole there might be guys who have already passed us," Durant said. "That's how bunched it is. It will be quite a shootout tomorrow, and if the weather's good there will be a lot of birdies flying."
