MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wearing a green shirt in a nod to Mexico's soccer team, Esteban Toledo birdied four of the last six holes Saturday for a 6-under 66 and the lead in the American Family Insurance Championship.

Five strokes behind tournament host Steve Stricker after an opening 69 in rain Friday at University Ridge, the 55-year-old Mexican player had six birdies in a bogey-free round to reach 9-under 135.

"I wear this shirt three days ago and I wash it myself last night so I can wear green today," Toledo said. "It worked. I wish I can wear this tomorrow, but tomorrow I'm coming in black and white."
