FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Patrick Cantlay grabbed a share of the second-round lead in the Hotel Fitness Championship on Friday, a week after the former UCLA star squandered a chance to wrap up a PGA Tour card.
Cantlay shot a 7-under 65 to match former Masters winner Trevor Immelman and Web.com Tour money champion Michael Putnam at 11-under 133 at Sycamore Hills in the Web.com Tour Finals opener.
Putnam had a 63, and Immelman shot 66.
Cantlay missed the cut last week in the Cox Classic in Omaha, Neb., to drop from 25th to 29th on the Web.com Tour money list. The top 25 after that event secured PGA Tour cards for the 2013-14 season, while Nos. 26-75 are fighting with Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup standings for 25 additional cards in the four-event Web.com Tour Finals series.
Arron Oberholser, Scott Harrington and Bud Cauley were a stroke back. Oberholser had a 68, and Harrington and Cauley shot 69. Troy Matteson was 9 under after a 70.
