Tyler Duncan finds himself hunting his first PGA Tour victory through 36 holes at the AT&T Byron Nelson.
Duncan enters the weekend at Trinity Forest tied for second place, four shots behind leader Sung Kang after a Friday 66.
The second-year Tour member dropped just one shot in the second round, but really made two mistakes: carding bogey and accidentally hitting his wife in the head when his approach to the 13th green sailed well to the right.

“Took a big bounce and hit her, I guess. I didn’t know until after the round,” he said. “I had a little mud on the ball, little unfortunate timing there and shot out to the right and didn’t get up and down. …
“I’m just happy she’s not hurt.”
Oddly, this was not the first time Duncan’s wife, Maria, has been hit in the head by a ball and gotten away relatively unscathed.
“Not long after we started dating, she actually got hit in the head by another ball, a random ball from the driving range,” he added. “She’s dodged two hits to the head. I’m sure most people can’t say that.”
