Morin Rudosky Lead After Round 2

SANTA ANA PUEBLO, N.M. (AP) -- Alan Morin and Micah Rudosky overcame gusty winds and the challenging Twin Warrior golf course Friday to share the lead after the second round of the 36th PGA Club Professional Championship.
Rudosky, the head professional at Conquistador Golf Course in Cortez, Colo., posted a 1-under-par 71 not long after Morin, an assistant professional at The Falls Country Club in Lake Worth, Fla., ground his way to a 73. They stood 4 under par at 140
They own a one-stroke advantage over 1995 Champion Steve Schneiter of Sandy, Utah, and Ron Philo Jr. of Amelia Island, Fla. Schneiter carded a 70, Philo a 73.
The field of 156 players, representing 38 states and 38 PGA Sections, was trimmed to 77 after a 36-hole cut of 6-over-par 150, guaranteeing a berth in the weekend rounds.
Rudosky birdied the 14th hole to gain a share of the lead in his fourth CPC appearance.
For the second straight day, a mid-afternoon patch of lightning passed through forcing a 65-minute suspension of play. When play resumed, Schneiter zipped to the lead at 6under before being slowed by three back-nine bogeys. He capped his round by making a 12-foot downhill par putt on the ninth (his 18th).
