Ishikawa in hunt for first PGA title


Ryo Ishikawa put himself in contention for his first PGA title on Friday, when he fired in nine birdies for an 8-under-par 62 to sit two strokes off the lead at the Wyndham Championship.

Ishikawa is tied for seventh, two strokes back of joint leaders Heath Slocum and Scott Langley. Ishikawa’s round of 62 was his lowest on the U.S. tour.

“I’m stunned I could get a score as low as this,” Ishikawa said. “From the first day I’d felt my golf was good, so it was just a case of things coming together.”

Hideki Matsuyama finished his second round at 1 under and missed the cut.
