A good finish by Dylan Frittelli saw him to a second-round 67 on Friday as he played himself into contention in the PGA Tour’s Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Mississippi.

Frittelli had a solid start with a birdie on the first, and another on the fifth, and, with no bogeys in his opening nine, he turned in two-under. He dropped a shot immediately after the turn on the 10th, when he didn’t manage to get up and down from the greenside bunker on the par-three, but he made four birdies in five holes from the 11th, including three in a row on 13, 14 and 15.

He reached the 36-hole mark in eight-under, five behind the leaders Will Zalatoris, Nick Watney and Sahith Theegala, all of the United States. They had a one-stroke lead over countrymen Cameron Young and Hayden Buckley.

Rory Sabbatini and Dawie van der Walt missed the cut.
