SILVIS, Ill. — A birdie-eagle start put Adam Schenk into good position for a 6-under-par 65 Friday that catapulted him into a tie for fourth place at the PGA's John Deere Classic.

The Vincennes golfer is 10-under par halfway through the tournament and three shots behind leader Jhonattan Vegas, whose 13-under score is one better than Andrew Landry. Lucas Glover is at 11-under, while Harold Varner, Russell Henley, Daniel Berger and Cameron Tringale are tied with Schenk.

First-round leader Roberto Diaz wobbled with a 2-over round Friday and dropped to 25th place at 7-under.

Schenk birdied the par-4 first hole, then eagled the par-5 second hole with a 30-foot putt. He bogeyed the par-3 seventh hole in an outward 2-under 33, but turned it up again with birdies on the par-5 10th, par-4 14th, par-5 17th and par-4 18th.

Only Vegas (9-under) and Glover (7-under) had better Friday rounds than Schenk.

The cut line Friday was at 3-under.
