Lashley stays hot to maintain lead in Detroit

Lashley stays hot to maintain lead in Detroit

He is now in his second season on the PGA Tour and appeared in supreme control as he compiled a nine-birdie, nine-under-par 63 at Detroit Golf Club.

"I hit a lot of fairways, hit a lot of greens". I had a lot of opportunities and I hit some of them and missed some of them. But I've got some work to do, just tighten some things up.

The 36-year-old Lashley slipped into the tournament as an alternate Wednesday. He is ranked 353rd in the world.

At the 207-yard par-3 ninth, his final hole of the day, Lahiri hit his tee shot from 188 yards to 14-foot for a third birdie. After falling to 5 over through 11 holes, he had four birdies over the last six to finish with a 73.

A group of seven that included Charles Howell III and Stewart Cink were a further shot back.

After four birdies on the outward half, he added five more coming home, finishing with a precise approach to four foot at the par-four 18th.

Ryan Armour and Nick Watney were at stroke back at 64.
