Pendrith began the day in eighth after an opening-round 68.

He birdied Nos. 3, 5 and 7 on Thursday to climb the leaderboard but fell out of the top four when he bogeyed No. 17.

Zalatoris got to 10 under with back-to-back 67s.

Pendrith's best finish this season came two weeks ago at The King and Bear Classic at World Golf Village, where he placed 14th.

Pendrith is the top-ranked Canadian on the second-tier Korn Ferry Tour, sitting 49th.

Meanwhile, Adam Svensson of Surrey, B.C., is 3 under following a 68 and Vancouver's Stuart Macdonald shot 71 to get through the cut at 1-under.

Mike Weir of Brights Grove, Ont., shot 74-76 to finish 6-over par, missing the projected 1-under cutline.
