MONTEREY, Calif. (AP) _ Tim Clark shot a 2-under par 70 to take a one-shot lead in the Buy.com Tour’s Monterey Peninsula Classic on Friday.
Clark’s 4-under 140 after 36 holes led the $450,000 tournament by a stroke over Chad Campbell, Tom Carter and Mike Heinen. Two strokes back were Charley Hoffman, Tjaart Van Der Walt, Deane Pappas and John Rollins.
Clark opened with a 70, and duplicated the score Friday. His score could have been lower, but he missed two birdie attempts from a total of 3 feet. During the first two rounds, the two-time Buy.com Tour winner missed five putts from inside 5 feet.
The 7,117-yard layout presents challenges with its thick rough. Through two rounds, only eight players were under par.
``If you can score 2-under par every day, you can win the tournament,″ Clark said.
