Perry finds the perfect balance

The American Chris Perry equalled the Brown Deer Park Golf Club course record with a nine-under-par 62 to move into a tie for the lead with his compatriot Mark Calcavecchia after the second round of the Greater Milwaukee Open. Perry had two eagles in his career-low round to move into contention for his first PGA Tour win. The 36-year-old started well on the back nine and ended his first half with an eagle at the par-five 18th hole en route to a bogey-free 12-under-par 130. Calcavecchia started the day three shots behind the first-round leader Loren Roberts, of the United States, but eagled the par-five fourth and made four birdies on the back nine. The American Steve Stricker posted a career-low 63 that left him a shot behind the leaders.
