The top four players on the leaderboard after 36 holes all hail from Europe.  Germany’s Stephan Jaeger leads the way at 12 under following an impressive 8-under 64 on Thursday on the North Course. He took the solo lead with an eagle on his last hole.

“I’ve been driving a fair bit of fairways. When I do miss it, I feel like I’ve done a good job with missing in the right spots, being able to kind of chase something up and being able to maybe have an easier up-and-down than you would out of the rough or something,” Jaeger said of his performance thus far. “I’ve been putting it well, my speed’s been great. Obviously made a couple of nice putts, longer putts that kind of kept the round going.”

“It’s going to be nerve-wracking, but it’s going to be awesome,” he said of his lead entering the third round, “so I can’t wait for this weekend.”

Denmark’s Nicolai Hojgaard followed his 5-under 67 on the South with an even better 6-under 66 on the North to sit in second, one shot back at 11 under. Belgium’s Thomas Detry and France’s Matthieu Pavon are T-3 at 10 under. Americans Tony Finau (66) and Michael Kim (68) round out the top five at 9 under.
