Four-way tie at Allianz Championship



Fred Couples birdied the final two holes Saturday to pull within a stroke of the leaders in the Allianz Championship in Florida, USA.

The 57-year-old Couples shot a 7-under 65 to reach 11-under 133 on The Old Course at Broken Sound.

Doug Garwood, Joe Durant, Scott McCarron and first-round leader Olin Browne shared the top spot, all birdieing the par-5 18th. Garwood shot 64, Durant 65, McCarron 66, and Browne 69. Tom Pernice Jr. had a 64 to match Couples at 11 under.

Couples birdied the first three holes, dropped a stroke on the par-4 fourth, birdied the par-5 sixth and eagled the par-4 10th. He two-putted from about 100 feet for birdie on 18.

"It was a good round overall," Couples said. "I made some putts, obviously. That's really about it. I didn't do anything overwhelming, but I didn't do much poor. A couple times I got it up-and-down to keep going. I birdied the first three holes and I absolutely butchered the fourth hole from about 80 yards. I came up way short and three-putted."

He holed out with a wedge on the 10th.
