Former NHL star Jeremy Roenick shot a second-round 69 Saturday to take the lead after 36 holes, and former LPGA great Annika Sorenstam and Chad Pfeifer, who lost his left leg above the knee serving in Iraq, are among several players in contention in the American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline, Nevada.

Roenick has a two-day total of 48 points in the modified Stableford scoring system with Pfeifer in second at 44 and former NFL quarterback Mark Rypien next at 43.

Sorenstam has 42 points and is tied for fourth place with 2011 champion, actor Jack Wagner.

Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who was three points out of the lead after the first round, fell to 19th place with 31 points.

Roenick, who played his final two NHL seasons with the Sharks, has twice previously held the lead after two rounds and is hoping to break through after a third-place finish in 2011 and a fifth in 2009.

Roenick, Rypien and Pfeifer are in the final group Sunday. The second-to-last group will have Sorenstam, Wagner and Trent Dilfer, who is in sixth place with 41 points.
