Taylor Pendrith of Richmond Hill, Ont., and Americans Nathan Tarter and Mike Van Sickle share the lead after two rounds at the Mackenzie Tour-PGA Tour Canada’s Cape Breton Celtic Classic.
The trio sits a 10-under-par 136 and lead five players by one stroke after 36 holes at the Lakes Golf Club.
With his second consecutive five-under-par 67, the long-hitting Pendrith is making a late push for a spot in The Five, the five players who will earn a card on next year’s Web.com Tour. He is currently 10th on the Order of Merit and trails the fifth spot by $10,146.
After his shaky start to the tournament on Thursday, when he was four over after six holes, Pendrith has gone 14-under in his last 30 holes.
“I got off to a good start today and played the par fives in five under, which is handy,” said Pendrith. “I made a couple of sloppy bogeys, but I hit my driver well and overall, I’m pretty pleased how I played. I made eight birdies today so I guess I am doing something right.”
