Pernice Jr.-Hoch lead Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf

RIDGEDALE, Mo. – Tom Pernice Jr. and Scott Hoch teamed to shoot a 9-under 62 on Friday in best-ball play at Ozarks National to take the first-round lead in the PGA Tour Champions’ Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf. The teams of Shaun Micheel-Loren Roberts, Ken Tanigawa-Gene Sauers and Roger Chapman-David Frost were a stroke back.

Pernice and Hoch had five straight birdies in the middle of the round. ”I got going early and I just kept filling it up and hitting some good shots,” Hoch said. ”I told him early, I said, ”Hey, I’ll get the front, you get the back,” and that’s kind of what happened.” The 59-year-old Pernice has five victories on the 50-and-over tour. The 63-year-old Hoch has three senior victories.
