St. Simon's Island, Georgia's Scott Wolfes shot a second consecutive 7-under 65 on Friday at National Pines Golf Club to take the second-round lead at the Ontario Championship, the 11th event of the 2017 Mackenzie Tour - PGA TOUR Canada season.
The 24-year old made six birdies, an eagle and a bogey on the day to reach 14-under, one stroke ahead of Tampa, Florida's Lee McCoy through two rounds at National Pines. With three top-25s this year but no top-10 finishes, the Georgia Southern grad said he hoped to turn his season around this weekend.
"It's been a struggle this year. I know I've been good enough and the scores just weren't there, and I've just been trying to stay patient," said Wolfes, admitting that his year to this point hasn't been what he had hoped for in his second Mackenzie Tour season. "Hopefully I can produce some good results this weekend. I have nothing to lose, so I'm just trying to get better and get on the Tour."
McCoy, who was one of five co-leaders after day one, shot a 66 to sit one back heading to the weekend, crediting his round to a strong tee-to-green performance once again.
"If you told me, given those conditions, that I would be not in the lead at 13-under, I would have told you that you were wrong," said McCoy with reverence for Wolfes' playing. "Obviously Scott played some great golf yesterday and today, and I’m looking forward to tracking him down."
California's Johnny Ruiz was a stroke further behind at 12-under after a 67, while British Columbia's Stuart Macdonald was at 11-under with a 67 of his own.
