PGA Tour rookie and former BYU golfer Zac Blair shot a 7-under 65 Friday and is atop the leaderboard at 12-under after two rounds at the Sand Hollow Open in Hurricane.
"It was awesome out there today, playing with two friends and teammates," Blair said in a news release. He competed alongside former BYU teammates Joe Parkinson and Justin Keiley. "It was a lot of fun out there, we really fed off each other all day."
Blair recorded a pair of birdies on the first two holes and added birdies on seven 10, 13, 16 and 17 while not recording a bogey during his second round.
Parkinson sits in a tie for second place after carding a 66, two strokes back of Blair heading into the final round Saturday. Phil Reedy, the first-round leader, Jim Knous and PGA Tour pro Pete Stone are also at 10-under.
"In a tournament like this, you can't win it on the first day or two, but you can lose it. So I feel like I put myself in a position," Blair said. "I don't see anyone shooting better than a 63 or 62. If I go out and shoot another 66, 65 I should be right there."
The leaders are scheduled to tee off at 9:50 a.m. Saturday.
