Kim climbs to Q-School summit

South Korean Kim Meen-whee hit a stunning round of 63 to top the second-round leaderboard at the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament in California.

After shooting a four-under 68 on Thursday, he went five better this time to sit 13 under and now looks in prime position to book his place on next year's tour.

Vaughn Taylor lies one stroke further back after signing for an eight-under 64 on the Jack Nicklaus Course and the American would have been tied for top spot had he not bogeyed on the 18th green.

Richard Lee and Steven LeBrun are a shot further back on 11 under, the latter losing ground after leading the way yesterday with a 64.

Swedish duo Robert Karlsson and Daniel Chopra are in a group of five players on 10 under, where they are joined by Americans Morgan Hoffmann and Edward Loar as well as Australia's Adam Crawford.

England's 2010 Ryder Cup player Ross Fisher is currently out of the top 25, tied for 34th on three under alongside namesake Oliver Fisher.

Four rounds remain, with the top 25 - and ties - earning 2013 PGA cards.
