SILVIS, Ill. (AP) J.T. Poston shot a 9-under 62 on Thursday to take a two-stroke lead in the PGA Tour's John Deere Classic.

Coming off a second-place tie last week in Connecticut after also opening with a 62, Poston eagled the par-5 second and had seven birdies in a bogey-free round at TPC Deere Run.

"It's, obviously, why you practice and why you work as hard as you do on your game," Poston said. "Any time you can have those rounds where you really get it going low and mistake-free, bogey-free is a bonus. It's why you work at it and why you practice the way we do."
