BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Mark Calcavecchia made an 8-foot birdie putt on the final hole Friday to take a one-stroke lead over Jay Haas after the second round of the Regions Tradition at Shoal Creek.
    
Calcavecchia shot his second straight 3-under 69 to reach 6-under, while Haas had a 70 after they came in as part of a four-way tie at the Champions Tour major.
    
Haas missed a 4-footer on No. 18 to give Calcavecchia a shot at sole possession of the lead.
    
Kenny Perry and Olin Browne were 4 under. Perry had a 68, and Browne shot 71. Browne was part of the first-round logjam along with Chien Soon Lu, who shot a 77.
    
Haas birdied the first four holes, and Calcavecchia had three birdies on the first six holes.

John Riegger shot a 3-over 75 and is at +1.

Russ Cochran struggled with a 10-over 82. He sits at +11.
