LEWISTON, N.Y. (July 25, 2013) -- Tyler Dunlap, an incoming junior at Texas A&M, shot a second straight 65 and holds the lead at the 2013 Porter Cup at Niagara Falls Country Club.

Dunlap trailed first-round leader Justin Shin by one shot entering Thursday's play but carded the day's low round --- matched only by Australia's Brady Watt --- to take the lead entering Round 3 of the 72-hole, stroke-play competition.

Shin shot a 3-under 67 and sits at 9-under, 131 through two rounds.

Beau Hossler, who matched Dunlap's first- round 65, shot 68 on Thursday to take sole possession of third place.

Contenders in the prestigious event made a move on Day 2. Notable players in the top 10 after two rounds include Watt (5-under, 5th), Bryson Dechambeau (4-under, T6), Peter Williamson (4-under, T6) and Max Homa (3-under, T9).

Given that the Porter Cup famously runs 72 holes with no weekend cut, anything can happen over the final two rounds. Players hoping to make a run with two rounds to play include: U.S. Open participant Gavin Hall (2-under, T14), Cameron Wilson (2-under, T14), Michael Miller (E, T21), Brandon Hagy (1- over, T25).
