Guatemala’s Jose Toledo has a four-shot lead at PGA Tour Canada qualifying school after 36 holes, following his second consecutive 66 on Wednesday in Beaumont, Calif.
Toledo, who won medalist honours at PGA Tour Latinoamerica Q-school, finished the day with three consecutive birdies.
Holding status on both tours offers Toledo the opportunity to play a nearly year-round schedule in Canada and South America since the schedules don’t overlap.
That’s a big difference from last year when he held conditional status on the WebDotCom Tour, but he says he struggled to find consistency without a predictable schedule.
“I’m a routine guy. I like to play Mondays and get a feel for the golf course and not having a set schedule last year was tough,” said Toledo. “Being able to play both Canada and Latinoamerica would be great for me.”
Toledo had five birdies, an eagle and a bogey on Wednesday to leave him at 12-under for the tournament, four shot clear of Brady Schnell of Phoenix.
