SILVIS, Ill. (AP) J.T. Poston took a four-stroke lead into the weekend in the PGA Tour's John Deere Classic, following an opening 9-under 62 with a 65 on Friday at TPC Deere Run.

Coming off a second-place tie last week in Connecticut after also opening with a 62, Poston got to 15 under with a birdie on the par-4 13th and parred the final six holes in the afternoon round.

"I feel great," Poston said. "My last few rounds out here have been great going back into last week, so just going to try and keep riding that momentum and doing what I'm doing. Don't change anything and just kind of take the good looks when they come. And when I don't have a good number or don't feel good over it, just be smart about it."
