8 JULY, 2022 - DP WORLD TOUR: Cameron Tringale is the halfway leader at the 2022 Genesis Scottish Open after battling his way to a second-round 72 to head into the weekend on seven under par.

The American fought against strong afternoon winds in the third Rolex Series event of 2022 - the first tournament to be co-sanctioned by the DP World Tour and PGA TOUR - and maintained his three shot lead over his closest challengers in Major winner Gary Woodland and countryman Doug Ghim.

A four-strong group sit one shot further behind Woodland and Ghim, who posted rounds of 72 and 69 respectively at The Renaissance Club, and leader Tringale will be looking over his shoulder at the big names waiting to pounce. “It was definitely more difficult for me today. Yesterday, it seemed pretty easy, and today, it seemed like every hole was a grind to make par. So anyway, happy to be done and happy to be off the course and get some rest" SAID THE LEADER.

“It's a lot, I guess. I mean, the wind is maneuvering the ball in some interesting ways and it's starting to bounce a bit more, too, ash the greens. Really just letting the game come to you, letting your round come as it goes on was key.

“I just want to keep going out and trying to play the best I can and hopefully get a good low one in tomorrow. I mean, the course I think is still gettable, honestly, even in the wind, I just need to play the par fives a little better, and you know, work on those into the wind shots and I should be all right.”
After shooting an opening 71 in difficult weather conditions on Thursday afternoon, newly-crowned Major Champion Matt Fitzpatrick showed what he is capable of, firing six birdies and storming into contention despite two late bogeys. He signed for a 66 to sit at three under alongside Xander Schauffele, who went one better, carding the low round of the day.

Joining Fitzpatrick and Schauffele on three under are Jordan Smith and Kurt Kitayama. The Englishman hit an incredible hole-in-one on the par three 17th hole, earning him and his caddie a Genesis vehicle each.

Smith was on his way to a three under finish when he hit a remarkable 186 yard shot with his six iron and was handed the keys to a new Electrified GV70 SUV, while his caddie, Sam Matton was given an all-electric Genesis GV60. 

Tyrrell Hatton was on two under alongside Rafa Cabrera Bello, Rickie Fowler, Rasmus Højgaard and Joaquin Niemann.
