Justin Shin of Maple Ridge, B.C., hit the midway point of the Buick Open in a tie for fifth, but he’s just one shot off the lead at the PGA Tour China event.
Shin, who is three under after the first two rounds, shot a two-under 70 on Friday.
The Buick Open is the final event on the schedule and Shin is currently eighth on the Order of Merit, which would earn him a direct ticket into the final stage of Web .com Tour Q-school if he finishes in that spot. The top five on the Order of Merit receive Web .com status at the end of the season.
