Claxton wind tested to remain on top at q-school

Windy conditions all over southern California have made golf quite interesting the past few days. Not that these guys didn't need any more added pressure to their already stressful week of trying to make it onto the PGA Tour.

First round co-leader Will Claxton carved his way through the wind in La Quinta to remain at the top of the leader board through two rounds of play, at 10-under par overall.

The 30-year old Swainsboro, Georgia native carded an opening round score of 64 to share the over night lead. He backed that up in extremely windy conditions with a two-under par 70 in round two.

Claxton has a one shot advantage over Matt Jones and Harris English heading into round three of six this week.

Jones and English, playing on different courses in round two, carded impressive rounds of four-under (Jones) and five-under (English) to rise up the leader board through two rounds.

English began the day in a tie for 26th. Now finding himself a shot back off the lead.

Jones, began the day in a tie for 10th position, now shares the second position with young Mr. English.

Round one co-leader Daniel Summerhays struggled in the conditions in round two, carding a one-over par round to drop out of the lead into a tie for 5th.

Two rounds down, four to go for these would-be PGA Tour card hopefuls.

Remember, only the top-25 and ties will earn their PGA Tour cards for 2012. There is still lots of golf to be played for these players.
