There hasn’t been a lot of movement up the leaderboard from those in the afternoon wave, but Todd Hamilton is making a run at the lead thanks to six birdies over his last 11 holes. He’s now 5 under through 16 holes.
Hamilton doesn’t have full status on TOUR -- he finished 133rd on last year’s money list and he has work to do at 216th currently -- so a strong finish here would obviously go a long way. Hamilton has made just two of 17 cuts this season, which includes missing his last six straight on the PGA TOUR. Without full status this season, Hamilton has also spent part of this season playing on the European Tour.
