BETHESDA, Md. — David Lingmerth matched his 5-under 65 from Thursday’s first round of the Quicken Loans National to maintain his lead at the tournament, where he sits at 10-under par after his second round on Friday. 

The 29-year-old Swede finished the day without any bogeys and holds a two stroke lead over Geoff Ogilvy at TPC Potomac in Avenel Farm. 

“Obviously a bogey-free round today is something that’s kind of hard to come by out here, it’s a tough golf course,” Lingmerth said.

“It’s so important to hit the fairways out here, and I’ve been doing a decent job of that the first couple days. I’ve been rolling it really well, so just trying to give myself some chances. You don’t necessarily have to be too aggressive, but hopefully we can get a few more putts to go in over the weekend”
