Patrick Moore of Cornelius, N.C. carded a 6-under par 66 for a two-day total of 135, good enough for a share of the lead with Scott Ford (Lake Worth, Fla.) and David Faught (South Africa).
On a day where the Canadian Tour field lit up Barefoot Resorts Pete Dye course, both Jess Daley (Chicago, Ill.) and Rich Massey (Harrington Park, N.J.), playing in the same afternoon grouping, fired course-record 65s. D.A. Points (Pekin, Ill.) and Ryan Dillon (Jupiter, Fla.) snagged hole-in-ones, both acing the 167-yard, par-3 6th hole.
Bryn Parry of Burnaby, B.C. is the top Canadian after firing a 69 Saturday to leave him four shots back of Moore entering Sunday.
Heavy rains caused the suspension of play during the opening round Thursday, meaning the tournament is now officially a 54-hole event. Sixty-four players finished at even par of better to make the cut.
This course isnt as intimidating as it looks, there is a lot of room out there, said Faught, who has a 66 and a 69 over the opening two rounds. The greens are very receptive here. Some of the greens are very receptive, both that is typical of a Dye course.
As he enters the final round neck-and-neck with Ford and Moore, Faught knows that some low numbers are likely to be put up Sunday.
Everything seems to be coming together for me right now. I think I have to just keep doing what I have been doing (on Sunday). It should go right down to the wire Sunday.
