Kirk feels right at home

Defending champion Chris Kirk is making another charge at the True South Classic. Kirk, 27, reeled off three birdies on his first nine in the second round for a bogey-free 33 on Friday at Annandale Golf Club in Madison, Miss. He then bogeyed the par-3 second hole and was at 8 under, tied for the lead with Garrett Willis, Jason Bohn and Steven Bowditch. Kirk, who grew up in Tennessee and went to the University of Georgia, opened his season with a T7 at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and added a T5 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. He's had three top 25s this season ranks 114th in FedExCup points. Kirk is in his second year on the PGA TOUR, and he made the most of his first. Kirk, who played a few seasons on the Web.com Tour,  finished 33rd in FedExCup points in 2011, carding four top 10s -- including his first victory at this event. Follow Kirk on Shot Tracker.
