New Zealand's Ryan Fox has had a much-improved second round to finish the day tied for 38th after a 67 to be five-under overall at the latest PGA Tour event in Detroit.

He had just the one blemish on the 17th hole after six birdies including three in a row on the 17th, 18th and first holes after he started his round on the back-nine.


Fox is still eight shots off the leaders, American Akshay Bhatia and England's Aaron Rai.

Meanwhile, at the PGA Senior Championship, Steven Alker has improved up the leaderboard 40 places to be tied for 24th after a 67 in the second round.

He hit birdies on the first, fourth and 15th holes for a three-under round to be two-under overall and nine shots off the leader, Hiroyuki Fijita of Japan.

Mark Long is tied 47th after a one-under round to be one-over for the tournament, while Richard Lee has missed the cut after being six-over after his second round.

At the LPGA's Dow Championship teams event, Lydia Ko and American Danielle Kang have scraped in under the cut-line at seven-under overall, five shots off five teams in the lead.
