MCKINNEY, Texas — Brandon McIver shot a 3-under-par 69 Thursday, but the Billings golfer will have to mount a late charge Friday during the closing round in his bid to advance to the finals of the Web.com Tour school.
The 25-year-old McIver is sitting in a tie for 48th with a 54-hole total of 3-under 213 at the second-stage event being played at TPC Craig Ranch.
The top 19 finishers and ties will move on to December's finals.
William Kropp of Edmond, Oklahoma, is leading the field in McKinney at 16-under 200. Minus-9 (207) is the current cutoff for top 19 and ties.
The Web.com Tour is one step below the PGA Tour.
