Puerto Rico Open at the Grand Reserve - Round Two
Brandon Wu leads with 11-under-par, Greg Chalmers 2nd on the board, 10-under.
Brandon Wu has been the forgotten man of the vaunted Class of 2019.
While Colin Morikawa has won a major championship and Matthew Wolff and Viktor Hovland have both notched PGA Tour wins and cruised into the top 20 in the world, Brandon Wu has been toiling on the Korn Ferry Tour.
But not this week. Wu, 24, is competing at the PGA Tour’s Puerto Rico Open and grabbed the early second-round lead with a 5-under 67 on Friday at Grand Reserve Country Club in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico...
... Wu made the birdie putt to climb to 11-under 133 and break out of a tie with Aussie veteran Greg Chalmers, who birdied his last two holes for 68. Full write-up here
"From breaking his garage door to making an ace!"
Even PGA Tour pros have been there, done that.

Chalmers, 47, has one PGA Tour title at the 2016 Barracuda Championship to his credit. He missed the cut in eight of nine starts last season and two of his three starts this season, including an 83 in his last round at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am two weeks ago.
On Thursday, Chalmers made four birdies in a row beginning at the second and then aced the 235-yard par-3 eighth hole on his way to shooting 66.
“I played some of the best golf I have played in a long time,” he said.
