ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Chris Baryla has taken a big step toward getting a PGA Tour card.
He leads by one stroke after two rounds of the PGA Tour qualifying tournament after shooting an 11-under 61.
Baryla tied for 65th after the first round. After Thursday’s round at the Crooked Cat course at Orange County National he is at 10-under 133. He is a shot ahead of Ben Martin, who had a 68.
Brett Waldman bogeyed two of his last three holes for a 72, leaving him seven shots behind. Waldman is the caddie for Camilo Villegas who had to go through pre-qualifying and two other stages to reach the Q-school finals.
The top 25 after six rounds earn PGA Tour cards for 2011. The next 50 are exempt on the Nationwide Tour.
