Since this story was posted, Martin Piller won the Digital Ally Open on Sunday with a 26-under 258 total.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — Martin Piller shot a 5-under 66 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead in the Web.com Tour’s Digital Ally Open.

Piller had a 20-under 193 total at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate. He had five straight birdies on Nos. 9-13 and also birdied the 16th.

“Every week out here guys make a run and play well and you just have to do it every day,” Piller said. “Every day you have to play well and be as good as you can.”

The 29-year-old Piller, married to LPGA Tour player Gerina Piller, won the Boise Open last month for his fourth tour title. He bogeyed the second hole and was 1 over through eight holes.

“I tried to stay conservative on the front nine and didn’t want to do any damage,” Piller said. “I was certainly more patient on the front. I was able to catch fire and get some putts to drop.”

Shane Bertsch, tied with Piller for the second-round lead, had a 68 to drop into a tie for second with Darrol Stiles.

Stiles had a 63, the best round of the day.

“I had some really good numbers, so I could make good, aggressive swings all day,” Stiles said. “I wasn’t having to chip this or chip that or stand on something. I could just be comfortable and hit that club for the number.”
