Nick Taylor leads the Canadian contingent going into the weekend at the Greenbrier Classic in Sulphur Springs, W.V.
Taylor finished Friday’s second round with a one-under 69 that left him tied for seventh at seven under, five shots off the lead.
“It was a little tougher today. Some of the pins were tougher. It was playing a little longer,” said Taylor.
“Every time I seemed to miss a fairway, I had kind of tough lies, so that’s where a few of the bogeys came from. I played pretty good, just didn’t make a couple putts coming in. I would’ve liked to shoot maybe two or three under, but in a good spot,” he added.
“What makes it tough right now is the fringes and the fairways are soft. The greens are bouncing, so some of the front pins you land a foot short it stays there. If you land a yard on, it’s 15 feet by,” he said.
“The front pins are tricky. There are a lot of salty breaks. A lot of times you can see it going left, then right unless you play straight,” he added.
Just a shot behind Taylor in a tie for 12th are Graham DeLaet, who shot a 70, and David Hearn, who also had a 69.
Mackenzie Hughes fired a 67 to move into a tie for 22nd at four under.
