SAN ANTONIO -- Even with personal matters on his mind, Blaine McCallister concentrated on the Texas Open yesterday and shot a 64 to grab a 4-stroke lead after two rounds with a 10-under-par 130.
Four strokes back at 134 were Wayne Grady, Bob Gilder, John Cook, Brian Claar and Bill Britton.
McCallister's fiancee, Claudia, has a rare illness that is causing bleeding in the blood vessels of her eyes. On Thursday, she was hospitalized in Jacksonville, Fla., because of the illness.
"She's a tough woman, and she means a lot to me and she makes golf look secondary," he said. "She's tough, and she makes me tough."
