Taylor Pendrith fired a fantastic round of 61 on Friday to lead the Butterfield Bermuda Championship by one shot from Patrick Rodgers.
Pendrith earned his PGA Tour card via the Korn Ferry Tour in 2021 and he is taking full advantage of his privileges at Port Royal Golf Club this week.
The Canadian shot a solid 1-under-par 70 in a tough first round, but he began on the back nine on Friday with three birdies in his first five holes.
He added a superb eagle at the par-5 17th hole, as well as six birdies in his final nine holes to card a superb score of 61. In doing so, Pendrith carded a career-low score to take the 36-hole lead.

Rodgers set the clubhouse lead of 10-under-par with his own card of 64 in the second round, before Pendrith posted his personally historic score.

However, the player everyone was rooting for this week was Brian Morris, who is the head professional at Ocean View Golf Course in Bermuda.
Morris was diagnosed with terminal cancer two years ago and he has had over 30 chemotherapy treatments to deal with his illness.
Morris received brain surgery in 2019 but he was informed by the doctor at Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute that his brain cancer was terminal and it had spread to his stomach and esophagus.

The local pro has chosen to attack his illness with all of his strength and it was great to see so many spectators support him at Port Royal, an event he had received a sponsor's exemption to play in.
Golf is his outlet and the 53-year-old was able to live his dream on the PGA Tour this week. Morris finished on 39-over-par after 36 holes, but his courage and bravery are far more important than any score he could've shot this week.
In terms of the rest of the field, Graeme McDowell and Seamus Power both sit on 5-under-par with two rounds remaining, along with Patrick Reed and Guido Migliozzi.
