(EFE) .- The Scottish golfer Martin Laird along with four other players share the provisional leadership of the tournament Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, from the PGA Tour, at the completion of the second round and adding 128 strokes (-14). On the side of Joaquín Niemann he finished with 66 strokes, Emiliano Grillo with 69 and the Colombian Sebastián Muñoz signed 67.
Laird and the Americans Patrick Cantlay, Brian Harman, Austin Cook and Peter Malnati, who made the best route with a card delivered of 62 impacts (-9), were placed with one advantage over the also local Bryson DeChambeua (129, -13), who had started the day as provisional leader.
DeChambeau made a good run with a record of 67 hits (-4), but could not with the inspiration of the new leaders who delivered signature cards of no less than 65 hits (-6), which Cantlay and Cook had for 63 (- 8) by Laird and Harman.
The Spanish Sergio García confirmed that he is still in a great moment of play by registering 64 strokes (-7) that allowed him to add 130 (-12) and share the seventh place with five other players, after having risen 14 positions.
Garcia, 40, winner last Sunday of the Sanderson Farms Championship tournament, the first of the season, had a perfect round that began with an eagle on the sixth hole and then made another five birdies (holes 9, 11, 13, 15 and 16).
Together with García, the Mexican Abraham Ancer, the Argentine Emiliano Grillo, the Chilean Joaquín Niemann and the Colombian Sebastián Muñoz managed to make the cut, which was established at -7.
Ancer delivered a signed card of 66 strokes (-5) to add 132 (-10) and share the seventeenth place with eight other players.
The Mexican golfer also had an eagle like Garcia, he did it on the ninth hole and concluded the round with another five birdies and two bogeys.
Grillo finished with a signed card of 69 strokes (-2) that gave him a sum of 133 (-9) to stay in position 26, tied with 13 other players, after losing 19 positions in relation to the first round.
While Niemann (66, -5) recovered 19 positions to add 134 (-8) and placed in the fortieth place, tied with 16 other players.
Muñoz, who delivered a signed card of 67 strokes (-4), rose three positions by adding 135 impacts (-7), enough to make the cut and continue in the competition over the weekend.
Something that the Mexican Carlos Ortiz (136, -6), the Spanish Rafael Cabrera and the Argentine Fabián Gómez (137, -5) and the Colombian Camilo Villegas (138, -4) will not be able to do.
