SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) Fred Couples made a hole-in-one in a round of 9-under 63 on Saturday and built a five-shot lead after two rounds of the Boeing Classic, his hometown tournament that he is trying to win for the first time.

Couples made the ace on No. 9, using a 4 iron on the 203-yard hole. It was the highlight of another solid day from the Seattle native, who has posted consecutive bogey-free rounds.

"I hit it really solid right at it and it hit - I don't know how it went in. It just hit and popped in," Couples said. "Then I birdied a whole ton of holes after that."
