PGA of AmericaNASHPORT, Ohio -- Jeff Coston set a course record with an 8-under 64 Friday to take a three-shot lead following the second round of the PGA Club Professional Championship.
 
Coston's round included an eagle, seven birdies and just one bogey and is two strokes better than the previous course record shared by first-round leader Mike Small and Brad Westfall. Westfall shot a 66 in the 2002 Northern PGA Club Professional Championship.
 
Coston, a teaching professional in Blaine, Wash., had a 36-hole total of 10-under 134.
 
'I made a couple of long ones to start, and I told the guys I was playing with that maybe I should go into the parking lot and look for wallets,' he said.
 
Bob Sowards, the 2003 PGA Club Professional player of the year, was tied for second at 137 after a 68. Sowards is joined by Robert Thompson, who shot a 69.
 
Small, who cooled off with a 72, was alone in fourth at 138, followed by four other players at 139.
 
The top 25 finishers in the 72-hole medal-play tournament qualify to play in the PGA Championship Aug. 12-15 at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis.
