US based Sydney golfer, Cameron Davis, is in a share of second place at the Travelers Championship near Hartford, adding a second round of 66 to his opening 65 and although five shots behind the tearaway leader, Xander Schauffele, the 27-year-old is well placed to produce a third top ten is his last six starts on the PGA Tour and perhaps even better.

Davis produced a homeward nine of 31 today including a birdie at the last (see video) to be amongst a group of five players tied for second.

Davis has played this event on two previous occasions missing the cut once and finishing 43rd in the other so this is quite a turnaround over the TPC River Highlands layout for him.

If he was to find a way to win this weekend and record a second PGA Tour title Davis would become the third Australian after Greg Norman and Marc Leishman to claim the title or its equivalent.

Leishman, Brett Drewitt and Jason Day were Australians to miss the cut while New Zealand’s Danny Lee withdrew halfway through round one.
