Justin Shin of Maple Ridge, B.C., was 10 shots higher in the second round of WebDotCom Tour qualifying school, but he’s still one of three leaders among Canadians at PGA West in La Quinta, Calif.
Shin opened Q-school with a 64 to take the first round lead, but followed up with a second round 74 and is tied for 25th, a position also held by Roger Sloan of Merritt, B.C., and Derek Gillespie of Oshawa, Ont., who shot a five-under 67 on Friday.
The top 45 at the end of Q-school will receive status in various categories. Those finishing below the top 45 and ties will earn conditional status.
