Wheatcroft starts off hot

This year has been mostly forgettable for Steve Wheatcroft.

Having regained his TOUR card after making "The 25" last year on the Nationwide Tour, Wheatcroft came to Canada having missed the cut in 12 of his 18 starts this season. He did manage a tie for third in Puerto Rico, but that's been the lone highlight ...

... until perhaps this week.

Wheatcroft has surged up the leaderboard Friday, thanks to a hot start that included two birdies and an eagle in his first five holes that temporarily moved him into a tie for the lead at 9 under.

Although he's just dropped a stroke to fall back to 8 under, Wheatcroft is obviously finding St. George's to his liking.
