Scott Parel takes a 1-shot lead into the weekend

Scott Parel started the day two shots behind overnight leader Kenny Perry but made seven birdies and shot a 6-under 66 on Friday to take a one shot lead at 11-under at the Constellation Senior Players Championship.

''I've been playing good golf, right there in contention a lot of times,'' he said. ''And that helps. The more you're up there, the more comfortable you are. If you do it once every few weeks, then maybe you get a little bit uncomfortable. But I feel good right now.''

This is only Parel's second time leading after a PGA Tour Champions round, he was tied for the first round lead at the 2017 Chubb Classic when he finished T10.

''I think if the conditions stay the same, you're going to have to shoot the same kind of scores that I've shot the last two days to have a chance to win,'' he said. ''The course is in perfect shape. The greens are perfect, makeable speed and smooth. So guys are going to make a lot of birdies out here.''

After college, where he did not play golf, he worked for 10 years before turning pro. He has had 13 top-10 finishes in 52 starts in the PGA Tour Champions including a tie for second place at the Mitsubishi Electric Classic in April and the Principal Charity Classic in June.
