And local boy makes good:
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Carl Pettersson has produced the latest record-breaking performance at the Wyndham Championship.
Pettersson shot a tournament-record 61 Friday and matched the PGA Tour record with a two-round score of 15-under 125.
Pettersson went to high school in Greensboro, played collegiately at North Carolina State and serves on the tournament's board of directors. He shot a 30 through his opening nine holes. Six of his 11 birdies came on the front nine.
His remarkable round eclipsed the previous low at the Wyndham of 63, a mark matched fewer than 24 hours earlier by first-round co-leaders Bob Heintz and Martin Laird.
Pettersson's 36-hole score equaled the tour record shared by Tiger Woods, Mark Calcavecchia, Tom Lehman and Corey Pavin.
Go Carl Go!
UPDATE: Pettersson pulls it out!
