Senior Tyler Docking carded a first-day score of 144 and is currently tied for 40th place. Both senior Barrett Martens and junior Joey Mundy recorded year-best rounds in round two. Martens shot a second-round 69 to climb into a tie for 50th place, while Mundy’s second-round score of 70 moved him into a tie for 61st. Sophomore Zach Pederson stands in 113th with a score of 158.
