Scott Piercy and William McGirt are tied at the top of the leaderboard at 11-under par 129 through 36 holes at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open at Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ancaster, Ont.
Piercy, who opened with a course-record 62 on Thursday, carded a second-round 67 that included four birdies and only a single bogey.
“When I shot 62, my expectation was to hit fairways and greens, and it just happened,” said Piercy.
“Today, knowing that it’s generally tough to follow up a course record, I just wanted to hit a bunch of greens, a bunch of fairways, and let it happen again. If I hit a good shot and hit two or three-under, then that’s great,” he said.
McGirt, who is coming off a season-high T5 at the True South Classic, carded a 66 in which he posted five birdies and just a single bogey.
“It was a pretty solid round. The only bogey I made was probably the best swing I’ve made all week,” said McGirt, who explained his approach to being a co-leader heading into weekend play.
“I still play the same game, fairways and greens, and take advantage of the opportunities when you get them. I’m not going to sit there and try to change what I’m doing,” he said.
Five Canadians made the cut which was set at one-under 139, including David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., who shot a 68 and is tied for 26th to lead the home country contingent.
