Davis Woodliff of Tulsa shot a second round 3-under 68 to tie for the lead with William McDonald of Oklahoma City 1-under 141 through 36 holes of the 54-hole Gateway Mortgage Group Tulsa Open AJGA event at The Oaks Country Club.

The final 18 holes will be played Thursday.

Alfred Raja of Indonesia is one stroke behind at 142 after a second-round 73. Another shot back is Jaxon Dowell of Edmond (71-72). In a tie for fifth are Jordan Wilson of Edmond (74-70), Terrin Anderson of Montgomery, Texas (72-72) and James Roller of Jenks (72-72).

In the girls division, Yingzhi Zhu of Austin, Texas and Yu Wen Lu of China are tied at 1-under 141. Zhu shot 69 Wednesday and Lu 72. Jennie Park of Carrolton, Texas, is third after consecutive rounds of 71. Jenni Roller (71-75) of Jenks is tied for fourth with Jillian Bourdage (74-72) of Taramac, Fla., at 146.

The players were treated to a short game clinic by Tulsa PGA professionals Tracy Phillips and Michael Boyd following the round. Boyd did the announcing while Phillips demonstrated a wide array of pitch and chip shots from different angles and lies and with different clubs, including how to hit a flop shot with a 1-iron (you had to see it).
