The short par-4 12th isn't one of the monsters at St. George's ... and Jeff Quinney picked the worst time to make a double bogey.
Quinney, who is trying to ensure his TOUR card for 2011 after a poor start to the year, had gotten to 12 under before missing the green at the 12th. Quinney's recovery missed the green, and he two-putted for a six.
Quinney's double gives Wilson a four-shot lead again.
Jeff Quinney is already 3 under after eight holes, putting him within three of leader Dean Wilson. But as seen on at St. George's this week, there is really only 15 holes for scoring at St. George's -- the final three are for hanging on.
Quinney's scorecard is a good example of that. He's 1 over collectively on the final three holes this week.
Jeff Quinney is with a 64 -- matching his season's low round -- and it didn't come a moment too soon. It's been a long, long time on TOUR for Jeff Quinney since the 2008 THE PLAYERS Championship, when he finished third after nearly stealing the right right under the nose of Sergio Garcia.
Since then, his career has derailed. He's had just two top-10 finishes in the 26 months since that day, and he barely hung onto his card after an inconsistent 2009 season.
Coming into this week's RBC Canadian Open, things haven't been much better. His best finish remains a pedestrian tie for 20th in the Sony Open in Hawaii, and he's missed as many cuts (10) as he's made (10).
The soluation? Two days of solid golf. No bogeys ... just 10 birdies and 26 pars to get to 9 under, two off the lead. For a long time, Quinney's name always popped up as one of the best players without a PGA TOUR win, but that talk ended sometime in 2009. With a strong showing this week, that talk could resurface.
