BLAINE, Minn. — Lee Hodges is taking care of business.

After 36 holes in the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities, Hodges leads alone at 15-under 127, holding a four-shot lead over Tyler Duncan and earning himself the final tee time come Saturday. Hodges had the second-best round of his career Thursday with a 63, and he followed that up by shooting 7-under 64 on Friday to increase his lead. He doesn’t have a bogey through two rounds.

He had seven birdies in the second round, and he was just able to finish before the second round was suspended due to darkness. Hodges nearly made an eagle putt on the 18th after the horn sounded, but he tapped in for birdie to increase his lead.

All of the leaders were in the clubhouse when play concluded.

Hodges, in his second season on Tour, hasn’t won and hasn’t even had a runner-up finish. He’ll look to change that this weekend.

Meanwhile, Duncan posted a bogey-free 4-under 67 to move into solo second after the second round. He has not made a bogey through 36 holes. Sitting at 113th in the FedEx Cup standings coming into the week, he needed a big performance and is doing just that.

However, there’s a group of four at 10 under that are all PGA Tour winners on the heels of the two in front, including the defending champion.

Here are some takeaways from the second round of the 3M Open.
