WASHINGTON (AFP) – Harry Higgs fired a seven-under par 63 to complete his best 36-hole PGA start and grab a share of the lead after Friday’s second round of the RSM Classic.
Higgs and fellow Americans Andrew Putnam and Cole Hammer shared the lead on 12-under 130 at Sea Island Golf Club on St Simons Island, Georgia.
“I did a very good job of being patient,” Higgs said. “That would be the goal for the next two days, stay patient, which always gets harder. The better you do, the harder it is.”
Players competed for the first two rounds on the par-72 Plantation Course and par-70 Seaside course, with the last 36 holes to be played on the Seaside layout.
