Top spot in sight for Owen
England's Greg Owen has a golden opportunity to claim the halfway lead in the McGladrey Classic at Sea Island Golf Club.
That's because the earlier starters failed to increase their advantage.
Bud Cauley still heads the leaderboard but he could only go round in level par today after recording an opening eight-under 62 yesterday, with Mansfield golfer Owen just two shots behind heading into his round.
Cauley birdied the par-five seventh to increase his lead but was back to level par for his round when he bogeyed the 14th.
Joint overnight leader Marco Dawson appears to have fallen out of contention completely as he is currently five over for the round with just two holes remaining.
American duo Michael Thompson and Brian Gay both recorded two-under-par 68s to move into a tie for second - one shot behind Cauley - alongside compatriot Chad Campbell, who is on three under for the day after 15 holes.
Three-time major winner Vijay Singh and this year's losing Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III are among those a stroke further back on six under overall.
After going round in level par yesterday, Singh birdied the eighth and 15th holes as he maintained his bogey-free record this week.
