WHO HAS WORK TO DO

Daniel Chopra (4 under, T-30) fired his best round of the qualifier with a 3-under 69, but will likely need to go lower to pick up the two shots he needs to get to the Q-School finale. Chopra had 21 starts on the PGA Tour in 2012, making only six cuts and making $192,198. He had two top-25 finishes.

Sam Saunders, the grandson of Arnold Palmer, will need to go low on Saturday to pick up a couple shots after he fired a 1-under 71 on Friday. Saunders (4 under, T-30) had four birdies over his final 10 holes on Friday, but a double-bogey at the par-4 18th sent him backward.

Ryuji Imada continues to work his way back from a horrible, 4-over 76 to open second stage, firing a 5-under 67 on Friday to sit two shots outside the top 19. Imada made only 12 cuts in 28 starts on the PGA Tour this season, picking up only one top 10.

Lee Janzen (2 under, T-39) had his best round on Friday, firing a 3-under 69, but will have three shots and more than a dozen golfers to leapfrog if he hopes to move on to the final stage.
