CL's Joe Affrunti shoots 67, sits 6 shots off John Deere Classic lead

Joe Affrunti knew his game was coming around and figured that, along with some familarity with TPC Deere Run could help him advance beyond moving day at the John Deere Classic.

On Friday, Affrunti continued his trend of making birdies and not playing himself into trouble. He posted five birdies and only one bogey to shoot a 4-under-par 67 to move to 6 under at the PGA Tour stop in Silvis.

Affrunti is playing the John Deere event for the second time. He missed the cut in 2010.

Affrunti will start Saturday's third round tied for 26th, six shots behind Patrick Reed, defending champion Zach Johnson and Lucas Glover, all of whom sit atop the leaderboard at 12 under.

Affrunti will tee off at 10:16 a.m. Saturday.
