Tom Weiskopf, better-known these days for building courses than playing them, and Tommy Aaron overcame slow starts to take the halfway lead at the US Senior Open in Bethesda, Maryland. The 52-year-old Weiskopf shot his second consecutive 69, while Aaron, who is 58, added a 68 to his first- round 70 on a muggy day at Congressional Country Club to stand at six- under-par 138 after 36 holes. "I didn't hit the ball as well today as I did yesterday, but my putting was exceptional," said Weiskopf, who runs a successful Arizona golf-course design firm.
