DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) - England’s Greg Owen shot a 6-under 66 on Friday to take the second-round lead in the Chiquita Classic, the second tournament in the four event Web.com Tour Finals series.
The 41-year-old Owen, the winner of the European Tour’s 2003 British Masters, had an eagle, seven birdies and three bogeys at River Run. He had an 8-under 136 total.
The bulk of the field is made up of players in the top 75 on the Web.com Tour money list and Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup standings. The top 25 on the Web.com money list are assured PGA Tour cards, while the other players are fighting for 25 additional cards.
Owen was 134th in the FedEx Cup standings.
Colombia’s Camilo Benedetti was a stroke back along with Kris Blanks, Andrew Svoboda and Will MacKenzie. Benedetti and Blanks shot 67, Svoboda had a 65, and MacKenzie a 68.
