GREER, S.C. — Cameron Percy made birdies on seven of the last 10 holes to shoot 62 and take a two-stroke lead midway through the Nationwide Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am.
Percy played Friday at Thornblade Club, one of three courses used for the celebrity event. Percy pushed to the lead when he made four straight birdies on the 14th through 17th holes to move to 13-under par. He was two shots ahead of first-round leader Darron Stiles (68), Reid Edstrom (66) and Aaron Watkins (66).
Gene Sauers shot a 66 and led a group of four two strokes further back at 9-under par. Brent Dalahoussaye, Robert Streb and Andy Pope were also four strokes behind Percy.
The field will use the three courses on Saturday before moving to Thornblade for Sunday's final round.
