Robert MacIntyre in hot pursuit as Chris Gotterup leads Myrtle Beach Classic

Scotland's Robert MacIntyre is one shot off the lead heading into the third round of the Myrtle Beach Classic.

MacIntyre occupied top spot after the opening day of the PGA Tour's inaugural tournament at South Carolina's Dunes Golf and Beach Club after he carded a seven-under par 64.

The 27-year-old followed up his impressive opening 18 with five birdies and one bogey on the second day to leave him on 11 under par for the tournament.

"It has been really good," MacIntyre said. "It's difficult to back up a good round, felt like I've done that really well. The front nine I was absolutely pretty much flawless.

"Missed a few chances, but when you keep giving yourself lots of chances, you're going to take some."

MacIntyre trails American Chris Gotterup, who ended his second round with a stunning run of six birdies in the closing eight holes to card a 64.

"There are a lot of good guys right in the mix there," Gotterup said. "Just got to go out and do what I'm trying to do and execute shots.

"I definitely can take advantage on a couple holes with some length. Just got to keep my pedal down and keep going."

Spaniard Jorge Campillo is one shot behind MacIntyre with four players – including Beau Hossler, who shared the first-round lead with MacIntyre – three shots behind Gotterup on nine-under par.

"I played quite solid," he said. "Off the tee, not so great, but not bad. The ball always was in play. My irons were actually very good, and my putting was solid."
