Garrigus surges to 3-shot lead at Innisbrook
PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — Robert Garrigus figured out Innisbrook on Friday for a 5-under 66 to build a three-shot lead going into the weekend at the Valspar Championship.
Garrigus is among the longest hitters in golf, and he took advantage of his power on a pristine afternoon in the Tampa Bay area. He birdied all the par 5s for the second day in a row. Garrigus has made only two other birdies this week, on a par 3 and a par 4.
Garrigus was at 7-under 135. He was three shots ahead of Kevin Na, who shot a 68.
The group at 3-under 139 included Justin Rose, Matteo Manassero, Pat Perez and Matt Every.
John Daly took a 12 on the 16th hole and shot 90, his highest score ever on the PGA Tour.
