Miguel Angel Jimenez shot an 8-under 64 on Saturday for a share of the Boeing Classic lead with Billy Andrade.
Jimenez had a bogey-free round to match Andrade at 10-under 134 at The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge.
''Moving day like people say, no?'' Jimenez said. ''We are moving — 8-under par today. It's a bogey-free round, very solid, consistent.'' The 58-year-old Spanish star has 12 senior victories, winning two of the first three events this season. He won 21 times on the European tour.
Andrade, also 58, birdied the par-5 18th for a 66. He has three victories on the 50-and-over tour after winning four times on the PGA Tour.
''Putter today,'' Andrade said. ''Putter has been pretty absent pretty much the whole year, so when you start making a few, all of a sudden it gets contagious a little bit. These greens are really hard.'' K.J. Choi, one of five players tied for the first-round lead, shot a 69 to join Gene Sauers (64) and Stephen Ames (68) at 8 under.
Darren Clarke (66) was 7 under with Charles Schwab Cup leader Steven Alker (68), David McKenzie (64) and Joe Durant (63).
Local favorite Fred Couples (71) and Steve Stricker (72) were 4 under. AP KHS KHS
