From the Associated Press

Corey Pavin finally slowed down in the U.S. Bank Championship at Milwaukee.

Pavin birdied five holes but made his first three bogeys of the tournament to shoot a two-under-par 68 and move to 17-under 193 on the Brown Deer Park Golf Course.

Jerry Kelly (64) was two shots behind Pavin at 15 under. Frank Lickliter (64) and D.J. Trahan (66) were 14 under, and Shaun Micheel (65), Billy Andrade (66) and Nathan Green (67) followed at 12 under.

Pavin, 46, who hasn’t won on tour since the 1996 Colonial, had to start off Saturday by playing seven holes to finish his second round at 64.
