(TSX / STATS) -- Austin Cook, a PGA Tour rookie, fired an 8-under-par 62 in the second round of the RSM Classic in St. Simons Island, Ga., to grab a one-shot lead heading into Saturday's third round.

Cook holed a 6-foot birdie putt on his final hole and has yet to have a bogey after 36 holes. His two-round total of 14-under-par 128 leaves him one shot ahead of Brian Gay, who had a 64 Friday.

Both Cook and Gay played the Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club.
