VERONA, N.Y. (AP) -- Vaughn Taylor has shot his second straight 67 to gain a one-shot lead after two rounds of the Turning Stone Resort Championship.
Taylor was at 10-under 134 after another cold, wet and somewhat windy day at Atunyote Golf Club.
Tied for second were Matt Kuchar (68), rookie Leif Olson (69), and Nicholas Thompson (67), whose 14-year-old sister Alexis was challenging for the lead at the Navistar LPGA Classic in Alabama.
Rookie Scott Piercy (66), Fredrik Jacobson (67), and Bo Van Pelt (66) were tied for fifth at 136. Van Pelt moved into contention with seven birdies on the back nine, six of them in a row, despite a steady late-afternoon drizzle that intensified toward dusk. Tim Petrovic (71), who shared the first-round lead with Olson, was at 7 under, tied with Australian rookie Aron Price (65), Jimmy Walker (69) and Troy Matteson (67).
