Summerhays joins lead in Mexico

Daniel Summerhays produced a sparkling 65 to join England’s Greg Owen and overnight leader Will Claxton at the head of the Mayakoba Traditional area in Mexico.

The 29-year-outdated American was four under par by way of his first 7 holes today and, although he dropped a shot at the ninth, three much more birdies right after the turn carried him to the greatest round of the tournament so far.

The 6-below-par card left him level on eight below with Claxton, who followed his bogey-totally free 66 yesterday with a 68 despite dropping his initial shot of the tournament at the brief 15th, and Owen.

The Mansfield-born pro, who turned 40 final Sunday, produced eight straight pars from his beginning point at the 10th and then birdied 5 of the remaining 10 holes on his way to a 2nd successive 67.

American Chris Stroud created a 66, marred only by a bogey at the very first, to lie 1 shot off the lead on 7 beneath, although Kevin Stadler follows a additional shot back along with Swede Richard S Johnson and Australia’s Robert Allenby.

John Huh is alone at 5 under and Korean Noh Seung-yul continued his eccentric route into the primary group, lying joint ninth on four underneath in spite of the second hole bringing him his 2nd double-bogey of the week.

Defending champion Johnson Wagner limped below the reduce mark at one above par right after a a single-beneath 70 these days but Rory Sabbatini, Greg Norman and his fellow former Open champions Ben Curtis and Todd Hamilton had been among people to miss out.
