Bo Van Pelt shot a 6-under-66 today and leads after two rounds of the Buick Open. He's a career-best 14-under-130 through 36 holes, two shots ahead of Daniel Chopra (CHOH'-pruh) and Dudley Hart.

Chopra carded a 67 today while Hart signed for a 68. Woody Austin is another stroke back along with Matt Jones.

Van Pelt is looking for his first win in 7 years on the PGA Tour. His best shot came at the Puerto Rico Open, where he led for three-plus rounds before losing to first-time winner Greg Kraft.

Just nine of the top 50 players in the world ranking are competing at this event.
