Rocco Mediate will take a three-shot lead into the third round of the Frys.com Open at CordeValle Golf Club.
Mediate added a 65 to his opening 64 to post a halfway total of 129, 13 under par, as he seeks to secured his US Tour card for next season in style.
The veteran American lost a 19-hole play-off to Tiger Woods at the 2008 US Open, but has not finished higher than ninth in a tournament since.
And that has left him 182nd on the tour’s money list, with only the top 125 retaining full playing privileges for 2011.
“If I don’t have enough money to be in the top 125 then I don’t belong there,” the 47-year-old told www.pgatour.com.
“I’ll go to qualifying school if I have to. I know I can still compete. I want five more years on tour, that’s my goal.
“I know physically I’m fine. If I stay in reasonable shape, which I will, I still hit it. I don’t hit it far, but plenty far enough.”
Japan’s Ryuji Imada is Mediate’s nearest challenger on 10 under par after adding a 67 to his opening 65, with Dean Wilson (64) and former world number one David Duval (65) a shot further back.
Sweden’s Henrik Stenson is among a five-strong group on eight under, alongside Rickie Fowler, the only member of the defeated US Ryder Cup team taking part.
