Greg Eason tops leaderboard at PGA Tour Canada qualifier

England’s Greg Eason carded a bogey-free round of 6-under 66 at Oak Valley Golf Club on Wednesday to take the lead by one at PGA Tour Canada’s California Qualifying Tournament.

The University of Central Florida student, playing as an amateur this week, made six birdies to establish the slim advantage over France’s Alexis Anghert and Peter Campbell of the U.S. with two rounds to go.

Thirty-three players are under par through two rounds of the 72-hole competition that will see 18 players earn exempt status on PGA Tour Canada for 2014, with the rest of the top 40 plus ties earning conditional status.

Eason, who has seven individual collegiate wins at the University of Central Florida – including one this past weekend at the 3M Augusta Invitational – is looking to wrap up his NCAA career later this year, but not before attempting to secure status on PGA Tour Canada. Players can compete in Qualifying School as amateurs and defer joining as members until they turn professional.

One shot behind Eason are Anghert, the first round leader, and Campbell at 8-under. A group of three players – Charlie Winegardner, Clayton Rask and Seth Fair – are a shot further behind at 7-under.

Hamilton’s Justin Kim remained the low Canadian at 3-under after carding a 72, tied for 18th place.
