Bart Bryant Takes Lead After Two Rounds At En Joie
Bart Bryant blistered the course today in round two of the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open at En Joie. Bryant fired a 10 under par 62 to lead Corey Pavin by four strokes heading into Sunday’s third and final round of play. Bryant, who began the day one stroke behind Kenny Perry, birdied the 18th hole to move to a four shot advantage.
His 62 is just one shot off the single round scoring record for a professional tournament at En Joie. Robert Gamez and Fred Funk each shot scores of 61 in previous B C Opens and Hal Sutton fired a 61 on the way to winning the B C Open in 1985. R. W. Eaks shot a round of 62 in the 2007 Dick’s Open.
Bryant finished the first round tied for second place with his brother Brad who shot an even par round of 72 today. Bryant captured the 2013 Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf Championship and currently ranks 28th in the Charles Schwab Cup Points standings.
Duffy Waldorf is five shots behind Bryant while Russ Cochran and Rick Fehr stand six shots in back of the leader. Fan favorite and two-time B C Open Champion Joey Sindelar shot his second consecutive two-under round of 70 to put him in a tie for 31st place at 140, 12 shots off the pacesetter.
Play resumes tomorrow morning. Radio coverage begins live from En Joie in the 10 AM hour on the Barb Mack Show on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
