Saturday Jul 15, 2017 12:00am

(SILVIS, IL) – Patrick Rodgers shot a 7 under 64 on Friday to take a two-shot lead after the second round of the John Deere Classic. Rodgers had eight birdies and a bogey to finish at 13 under 129 at TPC Deere Run. Finishing on the front nine, he had five birdies in a seven-hole stretch before closing with a bogey on the par-4 ninth. Bryson DeChambeau was second after a 65. Local favorite Zach Johnson, the 2012 winner, had a 67 to join Charles Howell III, the co-leader after the first round, at 10 under. Howell followed his opening 63 with a 69. Kevin Tway (63), Chesson Hadley (64), Chad Campbell (68) and J.J. Henry (64) were 9 under. Tway had nine birdies in a 10-hole stretch en route to the best round of the day. Rodgers, the 25 year old former Stanford star who is winless on the PGA Tour, has followed the formula that many players have used to win at TPC Deere Run: converting makeable birdies and largely avoiding mistakes. Rodgers also made his fair share of tough shots, notably chipping in from 50 feet on the par-3 third hole and holing a 50-foot birdie putt on the seventh hole.
