Daniel Summerhays is trying to become the latest rookie to win on the PGA TOUR.

GREENSBORO, N.C. --  Daniel Summerhays hasn't had much success in his rookie season on the PGA TOUR.

The former BYU standout's best finish, a tie for 11th at the Bob Hope Classic, came in his second start. He's played in 24 events and only made seven cuts all year.

Summerhays has turned things around at the Wyndham Championship, though. He's only made one bogey in his first 45 holes -- and as he waits out the rain delay, Summerhays is tied for the lead at 12 under with Tommy Gainey and Carl Pettersson.

Summerhays, whose uncle Bruce played the Champions Tour, has hit all eight fairways and nine of 10 greens in regulation on Saturday. He made the turn in 3 under and was on the 11th tee when play was suspended.

Summerhays, who finished fifth on the Nationwide Tour money list to earn his TOUR card for 2011, came into the week ranked 178th in the FedExCup. Right now he's projected to jump 118 spots to No. 60.
