SNOQUALMIE, Wash. -- Gene Sauers took the Boeing Classic lead Saturday, two weeks after his breakthrough victory in the U.S. Senior Open.Sauers, 54, two-putted for birdie on the par-5 18th for a 5-under 67 and a two-stroke lead over Joe Durant. The three-time PGA Tour winner had a 12-under 132 total at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.I just concentrated on hitting the ball solid, trying to keep it in the fairways and give myself opportunities just like I try to do every week, Sauers said. I had opportunities to make the putts, and I made a few today, missed a few. I made a couple of stupid bogeys.Sauers birdied four of the last five holes, making three in a row at Nos. 14-16.Just solid playing, Sauers said. Thats what Im going to try to do tomorrow.Sauers is playing through tendinitis in his left wrist.Coming in this week I was not too confident, Sauers said. I played one time at home because of my wrist and trying to heal it. I didnt know what to expect coming into this week. But I just won the U.S. Open prior to that, so that kind of builds confidence.The U.S. Senior Open victory capped a comeback for Sauers, 10 years removed from nearly dying. He was incorrectly diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, spent seven weeks in the hospital and was given a 25 percent chance of survival. Eventually, he was diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a disorder of the skin and mucous membranes that causes the skin on the extremities to burn from the inside out.Durant birdied the last for a 65.Its pretty generous off the tee, but youve got to hit good iron shots and I typically am a pretty good iron player, Durant said. Youve got to manage your game a little bit around here. Youve got to pick your spots because they can put some pins in some corners and greens get firm -- you can go through some of the greens pretty easily. Or if you put them in the green-side bunkers, youre begging for mercy.He won the 3M Championship three weeks ago in Minnesota.Tom Byrum and Stephen Ames were 9 under.
