Toms claims share of Sanderson lead
Veteran David Toms claimed a share of the lead at the Sanderson Farms Championship following a round of 66 at the Country Club of Jackson.
The 47-year-old Toms followed-up his first round total of 68 to join John Rollins at the top of the leaderboard at 10-under-par.
Starting the day on the 10th tee, Toms carded birdies on the 12th and 13th to reach the turn in 34 and would add four more birdies in his last six holes in a splendid display.
Toms has not dropped a shot in the first two rounds and will head into the weekend hoping the trend continues.
“I’m being real patient on the golf course,” he told the PGA tour’s official website.
“Playing to my strengths, trying to get the ball on the fairway.
“My iron game is pretty good right now if I have a good number and if I don’t have a good number (I) play conservative and obviously I’m starting to putt a little bit better so that helps as well.”
Rollins looked like he was going to go even lower as he birdied five of the first nine holes to turn in 31, but a bogey on the 10th and 17th ruined what would have been a brilliant round.
Meanwhile Canadian Nick Taylor was two shots back after firing a 69 in which he birdied five of his first seven holes before two bogeys stalled his momentum.
Americans Robert Streb and Tom Gillis were a shot further back and one ahead of a large group on six under including former Ryder Cup players Boo Weekley and Vaughn Taylor and 2009 US Open champion Lucas Glover.
