Rodriguez, Sloan tied for lead in Nova Scotia Open

Roger Sloan birdied two of his last three holes for a 65 Friday that pulled him into a tie for the lead in his homeland with Jose de Jesus Rodriguez after two rounds of the Nova Scotia Open on Tour.

Sloan, of Calgary, Alberta, went bogey-free at Ashburn GC. He birdied four of his first eight holes and ran off seven straight pars before his closing stretch. Rodriguez, of Mexico, shot 69 a day after taking the lead.

Brandon Hagy, making his pro debut out of Cal after playing in the Palmer Cup, shot 69 as well to get under par for the week and safely inside the ct line.

David Skinns and Zach Sucher were tied for third after shooting 70 and 66 respectively Friday.

Among the notables missing the cut were 2003 PGA Championship winner Shaun Micheel and 2013 U.S. Amateur champion Steven Fox.

The Tour said on its Twitter account that it has made contingency plans for Saturday in case Hurricane Arthur strikes Nova Scotia.
