FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- Greg Chalmers hit all but one fairway in the first round. He missed just two fairways in the second round. As a result, he ended the first 36 holes at The Barclays as the tournament leader in driving accuracy.
"Never done that before," said the Australian, who now lives in Texas.
"I've been driving the ball beautifully all week," said Chalmers, who entered this week ranked 86th in driving accuracy on the PGA TOUR this year.
Chalmers is making his 308th career TOUR start this week, and he's still searching for his first win. He's been a runner-up twice, most recently at the 2009 Buick Open.
Known for his prowess with the putter, Chalmers is happy with the rest of his game and his chances in Sunday's final round.
"I'm thrilled with the position I'm in right now and I have to go out and play well tomorrow," Chalmers said. "I'm really excited about where things are going at the moment."
