Lakewood Ranch’s Chris Kennedy rebounded to fire a second-round 69 in the PGA Tour Q-School Pre-Qualification stage held at Bear Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach on Wednesday.
The three-day, 54-hole tournament started on Tuesday and wraps up play on Thursday.

Kennedy opened with a 75, but his second round has put him with an even-par 144 total. It’s also moved him into a tie for 11th place.

The top 39 players and ties progress to the first stage, scheduled to take place at various venues in October.
Kennedy, who is in his first year as coach of Cardinal Mooney’s boys golf team, is playing in his first Q-School.

“It has been a little nerve-racking at certain points in my rounds, but for the most part I have been pretty relaxed and focusing on my game plan,” Kennedy said in a text message Wednesday. “I have been staying with my girlfriend’s family over here, so that has been a nice distraction off of the golf course to keep myself from thinking about it too much.”

Kennedy tees off at 9 a.m. in Thursday’s final round alongside fellow West Florida Golf Tour participant Danny Evelyn, of Lakeland.
