Australia's Mark Hensby birdied three of the final four holes Friday for a 7-under 64 and a share of the second-round lead in the inaugural Barbasol Championship.
Hensby matched South Korea's Whee Kim at 9-under 133 on Grand National's Lake Course in the PGA Tour event for players who failed to qualify for the British Open.
The 43-year-old Hensby won the 2004 John Deere Classic for his lone PGA Tour title.
Kim shot a 66. He's playing his 19th event in his rookie season on the PGA Tour.
Argentina's Emiliano Grillo, the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 98, shot a 66 to join first-round leader Sam Saunders and Charlie Beljan at 8 under. Saunders, Arnold Palmer's grandson, followed his opening 64 with a 70, and Beljan had a 64.
David Toms topped the group at 7 under after a 66.
