Bryan DeCorso takes the halfway lead at the Midwest Classic presented by Cadillac
Canadian Bryan DeCorso is leading the Midwest Classic, presented by Cadillac, at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate. A sparkling eight-under par 63 second-round score gave him a one shot lead over Benoit Beisser from the United States.
DeCorso started off his day with a tied 31st place on the leaderboard and made a strong charge on the leaderboard early in the round.
He managed to record five birdies on the front nine of the course to go five-under par. Another four birdies against a lone bogey on the back nine took him to the top for the first time in the 2012 Tour season.
"I got off to a quick start again today with birdies on my first two holes after making birdies on my first three yesterday,” he said.
“My caddie and I talked today about talking through a few more shots so I wouldn't play as fast. I also eliminated some of the mental errors I made yesterday”.
"I made three bogeys with wedges yesterday and that's just a mental mistake,” he continued. “Today I played well off the tee and my mid-irons have been great. I'm happy with how I'm playing and it's nice to be in this position”.
It was a stunning display of the game, especially when he did not have a good track record on the tour this season. He only registered one top-25 finish in the last 13 tournaments that he played.
Moreover, he was listed at the 131st position prior to coming to Kansas to participate in his 14th tournament of the year.
This time, the 41-year-old recorded the best round of his career, as his previous best, 64, came at the 2009 Utah Championship and the 2011 Cox Classic.
According to him, he made several mistakes in the opening round and turned his low scoring day into an average round. However, he managed to overcome his errors and brought necessary changes in his game that earned him a respectable spot on the leaderboard.
In the meantime, Beisser retained the second spot after carding a three-under par 68 for a nine-under par midway score.
