Sung Kang stole the Friday show at the Byron Nelson but the man with the most attention is in hot pursuit.
Kang shot a 10-under par 61 to tie the tournament course record and after 36-holes is a mind-boggling 16 under par at Trinity Forest
Matt Every, who lost his tour card, is four back at 12-under. He’s playing under past champion status in a field that allowed a lot of non-exempt players to snag a spot. He’s tied with Tyler Duncan.
But the biggest name in the field is lurking five back of Kang and it was Brooks Koepka who built up a head of steam heading into the weekend.
Koepka, who will defend his PGA title next week at Bethpage Black, birdied four of his last five holes to shoot 30 on the back nine and is in at 11-under par.
Jordan Spieth, playing on his home course, shot 67 and is tied for 10th at seven-under par. Spieth has not had a top 10 finish in 2019.
The 36-hole cut came at two-under par and Tony Romo, playing on a sponsor’s exemption, shot 76-74, tied for 148th and missed the cut by 10 shots.
