Vancouver’s Ryan Williams shot a seven-under 65 on Friday at Sunningdale Golf and Country Club to take a one stroke lead through 36 holes at the Tour Championship of Canada in London, Ont.
Williams was bogey-free on Friday, matching his low round of the season to reach 10under through two rounds, one clear of Erik Barnes of Kalamazoo, Mich. and two clear of playing partner and travelling companion Adam Cornelson of Langley, B.C.
“I worked a little harder this week than I think I have in the previous weeks,” said Williams. “The game’s clicking right now, but you know, it’s only two days and I’ve put myself in a good position for the weekend. It should be fun.”
Williams comes to Sunningdale with two top-10s and four top-25 finishes on the year, but seven missed cuts, including four by a single shot.
The seven-year PGA Tour Canada veteran said the frustration got to him at times this season, but that he knew he was on the verge of playing well with one week to go.
“This tour is so good and so competitive and the cuts are so low, you can play well and miss a cut,” said Williams.
