Patrick Cantlay’s string of birdies has him in five-way tie atop PGA leaderboard

Patrick Cantlay ran off four straight birdies at the midway point of his round Friday and got up-and-down from a bunker on the par-5 ninth to cap off a 6-under-par 65 and be part of a five-way for the lead going into the weekend in Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at Las Vegas. Martin Laird hit his second shot into 4 feet for eagle on his closing hole at the ninth for a 63. Peter Malnati made a 15-footer for eagle from the fringe on No. 9 to close out his 62. They joined Cantlay at 14-under 128, along with Brian Harman (63) and Austin Cook (65). US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau, who opened with a 62, was one shot behind at the TPC Summerlin.
