Warren native Jason Kokrak is currently tied with D.A. Points for second place, one shot off the lead at the Shell Houston Open at Redstone Golf Club.
Steve Wheatcroft tops the leaderboard, after narrowly qualifying for the tournament at the start of the week.
Kokrak, who shot a 6-under 66 on Thursday, entered play on Friday tied for fourth place. Friday, he shot a 69 and will play in the final group with Wheatcroft, whom he knows well.
“I’m happy for him,” Kokrak said. “I’m happy he’s doing well. Hopefully, I can go out there and overtake the lead. Hopefully, I overtake him late Sunday,” Kokrak said.
Kokrak and Wheatcroft’s tee time is set for 12:30 Saturday.
