McGirt joins Piercy in leading Canadian Open
Americans Scott Piercy and William McGirt lead the Canadian Open at the halfway stage after both reached 11-under in the second round.
Piercy had shot to the top of the leaderboard in the first round with a score of 62 on Thursday and followed that up with a 67 at the Hamilton G&CC in Ontario.
Having lead the field outright, Piercy has been joined by McGirt in leading the PGA Tour event after the American competitor shot a 63 to back up his first round 66.
McGirt admitted: "I've never been in this position out here. I was in the next to last group at Tampa this year. It was a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to it."
Round of the day went to Tim Clark after he shot a 62, a remarkable return to form for the South African who has missed the cut in four of the six tournaments he has played in this year.
Elsewhere, it was a bad day for England's Greg Owens as he dropped to 17th after shooting two over, while Open champion Ernie Els shot a 70 to add to his first round 72, missing the cut by three shots.
