2013 Shell Houston Open scores: Steve Wheatcroft moves into first

Scott Halleran

The leaderboard was moving and shaking at the Shell Houston Open on Friday as Stewart Cink stormed into the top five and Steve Wheatcroft took a one-stroke lead at the very top.

Steve Wheatcroft moved into first place on the leaderboard of the 2013 Shell Houston Open with a one-stroke lead on Friday. Wheatcroft matched his opening day total of 5-under-par 67, while a number of the golfers who were ahead of him entering play struggled to keep up.

D.A. Points, the leader at the start of Friday, shot 71 to fall one-stroke behind into a tie for second place. Cameron Tringale, who entered Friday in a tie for second place, fell four spots to sixth after finishing 1-over on the day. John Rollins, who was also in second place, finished 2-over to end Friday five-strokes back of Wheatcroft.

Wheatcroft surged after making the turn, scoring birdies on three of four holes. Jason Kokrak, who at 9-under total now sits in second place, kept pace with Wheatcroft for much of the day, but faltered with a double bogey at the 17th hole to knock him back.

Stewart Cink was one of the biggest movers of the day, finishing 6-under to move into a tie for fourth place.
