Back-to-back 69s secure Will Coleman the halfway lead

The second round was completed at 9:30 a.m. today and the third round got underway at 10:30 a.m.

SEBRING, Fla. (January 23, 2014) – Florida’s Will Coleman shot par on his last three holes, making bogey on 17 and birdie on 18 this morning to secure the outright lead through 36 holes of play at the NEC Series-PGA TOUR Latinoamérica’s second and final Qualifying Tournament for the 2014 season.

With his two 69s at the Sun ‘N Lake Golf Club’s Deer Run Golf Course, Coleman leads the tournament at 6-under par 138. He is one shot ahead of Germany’s Stephen Jaeger, who carded a 70 on Wednesday. Canada’s Peter Campbell is third place, following a strong second round of 68. Four other players are tied for fourth at 141.

“I really came in here with no expectations, just trying to go through my process and taking care of what I needed to do on the golf course. I haven’t look at a leaderboard yet this week, trying not to worry about what I can’t control. I guess I’m doing a good job, managing my game and putting really well,” commented the leader at the conclusion of the second round earlier today. 

Originally from Maryland, Coleman lives in Jupiter, Florida and is looking to claim back the card for a second season in Latin America. “I played ten events (on this Tour) last season. I didn’t know what was I getting into when I went down last year and I was pleasantly surprised. I can’t wait to finish this week to get a card and go back,” said the 30-year old.

At the conclusion of the second round players were re-paired by score and the third round got underway at 10:30 a.m. Being this an event with no cut, a total of 126 players remain on the race for the Tour card. Round 3 will not be completed today, as the group featuring the players in the top 3 is scheduled to start at 4:40 p.m. The delays have pushed the conclusion of this tournament into Saturday.

NOTES: 

Weather/Delay. Sunny and clear. Temperatures in the high 30s at the beginning of the day. The second round was scheduled to resume at 7:20 a.m. on Thursday, but a frost delay delayed the resumption until 8:20 am.

Nice comeback. After carding a 77 in the opening round, Brien Davis of Charlotte, North Carolina posted a 67 on Thursday morning to card the lowest score of the second round.
