Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium is among the longest hitters in golf. Colsaerts overpowered the par 5s at rain-softened Lake Malaren for the second straight day on his way to an 8-under 64, giving him a one-shot lead over Alexander Levy of France going into the weekend of the BMW Masters. ''I kept on hitting good drives, which for me here is a big bonus because it's pretty soft,'' Colsaerts said. He beat Colsaerts, who had opened with a European Tour record-tying 60.

Hurley, who played bogey-free in the opening round, had a superb start with three birdies on his opening four holes, including two that played the toughest in the opening round: the par-3 11th over water and the long par-4 13th.

Tom Pernice Jr. shot a 5-under 65 on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead over Bernhard Langer and three others in the Champions Tour's Charles Schwab Cup Championship. ''I drove the ball straight today, kept it in play,'' Pernice said ''I think that's important. If you do that here, you're going to have some good opportunities.'' The 55-year-old Pernice won the Principal Charity Classic in Iowa in June for his third career victory on the 50-and-older tour. He rebounded from a bogey on the par-3 17th with a birdie on the par-5 18th on Desert Mountain's Cochise Course.

The 57-year-old German star wrapped up the Charles Schwab Cup points title Sunday in San Antonio, taking a lot of the drama out of the season-ending event that begins Thursday at Desert Mountain. ''There's still a lot to play for because we're playing for a lot of money, but the Charles Schwab Cup is wrapped up and that's great news for me.
