Bart Bryant ended his second round of the Allianz Championship on Saturday with an albatross -- the first on the Champions Tour since 2010.
Bryant used a 6-iron from 195 yards on the 509-yard, par-5 18th hole, giving him a piece of the four-way tie for the lead. The albatross came after Bryant had lost touch of the lead with four bogeys in the prior seven holes.
"I was going to hit a 5-iron, but I thought if I got the 6-iron high enough it would just clear the bunker," Bryant said. "I never saw it go in. That sure made up for a lot of bad shots."
Keith Fergus was the last player to make an albatross on the tour, doing so in the 2010 SAS Championship.
The albatross wrapped up a 3-under 69 for Bryant, leaving him tied with Paul Goydos (69), Tom Pernice Jr. (69) and Rod Spittle (66) at 9-under 135.
