2012 Barclays: Michigan Native Tom Gillis In Top Half Of Leaderboard

The Barclays golf tournament is taking place this week in New York and, while most people don't associate many golfers with SB Nation Detroit, Tom Gillis is attempting to make the state of Michigan proud as he stays in the top half of the leaderboard.

Gillis, a Pontiac native and graduate of Oakland Community College, is currently shooting even par through the front nine on the second day of the four-day event to keep himself 2-under in the tournament. That doesn't sound overly impressive, but he's currently in 29th place out of a field of 122 golfers.

The 44-year-old shot 2-under in Thursday's go-around at Bethpage Black, but has been a bit more up and down in the second round as he's picked up a pair of birdies and bogeys through nine holes on Friday.
