Vijay Singh is making a run in Hawaii.

KAPOLEI, Hawaii -- Vijay Singh shot a 6-under 66 to move into second place after the second round of the Pacific Links Hawaii Championship.

Singh, playing his first event on the Champions Tour, moved within one shot of overnight leader Mark Wiebe, who had a 69 Saturday after opening with a 64. Singh carded a 69 in the first round. The three-time major champion and former world No. 1 had six birdies in his bogey-free second round.

Corey Pavin (68) and Brian Henninger (67) were three shots back in a tie for third place, while Sandy Lyle (70) and John Cook (66) were a further stroke back.

Australian on top in Italy

TURIN, Italy -- Marcus Fraser shot a 4-under 68, giving the Australian a one-stroke lead over Italy's Francesco Molinari, Belgium's Nicolas Colsaerts and Sweden's Joakim Lagergren after three rounds of the Italian Open.

Fraser had a chip-in birdie on the sixth hole in a bogey-free round that left him at 11 under.

Molinari is trying to capture his national tournament for the second time, having won in Milan in 2006. He became a member of the Golf Club Torino when he was 8 years old.

Fraser says he faces a tough closing round with Molinari just one shot behind and the crowd pulling for him. But, he adds, he will have to play his game and "try and spoil the party, I suppose."

Americans lead PGA Cup

HEXHAM, England -- Rod Perry and Jeff Sorenson contributed birdies on their last four holes Saturday and the Americans took a 10 1/2-5 1/2 lead over Great Britain & Ireland in the PGA Cup.

Perry, who won the PGA Professional National Championship this year, nearly holed out for eagle from a bunker on the 13th hole and chipped in for birdie on the 15th. Sorenson made seven birdies in their 3-and-2 fourballs win over Nick Brennan and Gareth Wright.

The teams split the morning foursome matches at Slaley Hall. Greig Hutcheon and Scott Henderson of GB&I had an 8-up lead at the turn before winning, 6 and 5. The Americans halved the next fourballs match and won the other two.

The PGA Cup, for club professionals, ends today with 10 singles matches.
