Finau Needs a Good Round to Make Cut in Nationwide Event

GREENVILLE, S.C. – Tony Finau is in 91st place after shooting two rounds of even par golf in the BMW Charity Pro-Am being played on three different courses.
The unique Nationwide Tour event features 168 professionals and celebrities in a better-ball format hosted by the Thornblade Club and Greenville Country Club/Chanticleer Course in Greenville, S.C. and the Carolina Country Club in nearby Spartanburg. Play resumes tomorrow at all three clubs with the professional cut to the low 60 and ties coming after 54 holes. The low 14 celebrity/amateur teams will also advance to play their final rounds on Sunday at Thornblade along with the professionals.
Australian Cameron Percy blistered the Thornblade Club today firing a 9-under 62 to take a two-shot lead at the halfway point of the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation. Seeking his first Nationwide Tour win, the 38-year-old reeled off nine birdies between the fifth and 17th hole. Four of them came in succession on holes 14 through 17. His 36-hole aggregate of 130 is 13-under par.
First-round leader Darron Stiles followed up yesterday’s 64 with a 68 at Thornblade. He was joined at 11 under by Reid Estrom, who bettered his first-round 67 by one shot at Carolina Country Club, and Aaron Watkins. Also playing at Carolina, Watkins posted birdies on five of his last seven holes, including the final three.
