Johnston has a two shot 36 hole lead over Scott Stallings and Miguel Angel Carballo at the Web.Com Tour’s second of four Finals, the Boise Open in Boise in Idaho, his round of the day 63 setting up the chance of a high finish in the event and possible graduation to the PGA Tour if she should finish inside the top twenty-five on the Finals money list.
After a blistering start to his round today, when he birdied his first four holes, Johnston then reeled off five birdies in seven holes on his back nine to move clear.
Matt Jones leads the Australians in 34th position, Stuart Appleby and Rod Pampling are 45th and Cameron Percy 62nd.
Appleby, Percy and Pampling remain inside the top twenty-five although it is a moving feast as to how they will finish up at week’s end and at the completion of all four Finals.
