PGA TOUR Q school 2012 leaderboard: Meen Whee Kim moves into the lead

Richard Heathcote

Meen Whee Kim shot up the leaderboard on the second day of the PGA Tour qualifying tournament.

The 2012 PGA Tour qualifying tournament continued with the second round on Thursday and the players are closely bunched at the top of the leaderboard as they attempt to earn a PGA Tour card.

Meen Whee Kim shot a 9-under 63 in the second round to move into the lead. Whee Kim is now 13-under for the tournament, one stroke ahead of Vaughn Taylor who is in second place. Like Whee Kim, Taylor started the second round in a tie for 20th place, but he shot up the standings with a round of 64 on Thursday.

Behind Whee Kim and Taylor, the top of the leaderboard is crowded as 58 players are at 5-under or better. The top 25 players will earn PGA Tour cards for the upcoming season. There are a few notable names in the group currently in contention including Heath Slocum and Camilo Villegas. Slocum is tied for 14th place at 8-under while Villegas jumped from 50th place into a tie for 23rd at 7-under.

While a few players have put themselves in good position, a lot could change. PGA Tour Q-school is a six-round tournament so the players still have 72 holes to play.
