“We had a really poor day today,” said Head Coach Ross Randall. “The conditions were very windy and it seemed as if every time we were in tough positions our problems got worse and we had some really high scores on some holes. We still aren’t many shots out of third place so we hope to play better tomorrow.”

Senior Tyler Docking shot an 81 in round two and sits in a tie for 27th place after day two. Freshman Bobby Knowles shot a second-round 86 to fall into a 32nd place tie. Zach Pederson shot his second consecutive round of 83 to finish the day in 59th place.
