Last time here, Taylor Pendrith erected in Taylor; Now, he’s driving the rocket

Detroit – He grew up only about four hours away, outside of Toronto, in Richmond Hill, Ontario, but Taylor Pendrith didn’t come to the Detroit area as a kid. Well, at least not playing golf.

He came here once, in fact – for the World Junior Championships in Taylor, where, he remembers, his team smoked because the American kids were a little bit older, bigger and much stronger.

Taylor Pendrith watches his lead as he pulls off from ninth during round two of Friday's Rocket Mortgage Classic golf in Detroit.

Pendrith is retaliating this week at Detroit Golf Club, where he was delivering a perfect four-hole game in the second round on Friday, en route to a 7-under-65 that gave him the lead by one stroke over Tony Finau halfway. Point from Rocket Mortgage Classic.

Pendrith is one of many starters on the PGA Tour on the leaderboard, along with his co-playing partner Lee Hodges (12 under), Cameron Young (10 under) and Sahith Theegala (9 under). For Friday’s first four holes, Pendreth and Hodges matched each other, Flying for Byrdie. Hodges shot 66.
