Herron ties course mark of 61

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Tim Clark, Sergio Garcia, Jimmy Walker and Harris English may own the lead at the Wyndham Championship right now but Tim Herron is the one who grabbed the morning headlines.

Herron, who started the day 155th in a 156-man field, tied the course record with a 61. He moved up 121 spots when he finished into a tie at 3 under.

The 15-shot swing assured Herron of a spot on the weekend. It also gave him a shot at making the FedExCup Playoffs. Herron started the week at No. 139 and he likely needs to finish in a tie for eighth or higher to move into the top 125 and earn a spot in the field at The Barclays.

Herron started on the front nine and made the turn in 32 after notching four birdies and a bogey. He birdied the 10th hole and then reeled off five in a row starting at No. 13 to shoot 29 on the back.
