While Matthias Schmid of Germany and Bryson Nimmer of Bluffton, S.C. set the pace at 11-under through 36 holes, the best finish for the locals was a tie for ninth at 4-under between University of Oklahoma teammates Blaine Hale (68-70) and Quade Cummins of Weatherford (72-66).
Austin Eckroat of Edmond and Oklahoma State is tied for 15th at 2-under (72-68). Mason Overstreet of Kingfisher and the University of Arkansas is tied for 19th at even-par (73-69). Brad Dalke of OU and Norman is 28th at 10-over (78-74) while Hayden Wood of Edmond and OSU is in the rear at 14-over (84-72).
