Puerto Rico’s Rafael Campos, Paraguay’s Fabrizio Zanotti and American Justin Suh shared the lead on seven-under par 137 after Friday’s second spherical of the US PGA Corales Puntacana Championship.
Campos fired a bogey-free three-under 69 with a closing birdie whereas Suh had three birdies and an eagle in his final six holes to shoot 69 and Zanotti had a 68 in windy circumstances at the event’s namesake Dominican resort.
Campos birdied the par-3 second and par-5 seventh then birdied the final to prime the leaderboard.
“I’m really happy with that last hole,” Campos mentioned. “It was really tough out there, especially that hole. The course is playing really tough with this wind.
“Bogey-free, I did not notice that till after I completed. I used to be simply attempting to grind by means of each shot and each gap as a result of I used to be making it rather a lot tougher than I actually wished.”
Campos usually enjoys playing in this Caribbean holiday paradise.
“I actually do really feel like I’m at residence,” Campos said. “This is my second residence truly. My household has had a home right here for 20 years and anytime I come out right here, play, each time I’m in trip mode, I truly come right here to the Dominican Republic.”
Zanotti birdied three of four par-5 holes and the same number of par-3s but stumbled with two early bogeys.
“It’s actually powerful,” he said. You have to be really patient because of the wind. I’m playing good.”
Suh, a back-nine starter, eagled the par-5 fourth and birdied the sixth, seventh and ninth to share the lead.
