  • William Love signed for rounds of 2-over, 73, and 1-over, 72, on Monday. The sophomore stumbled late in the first round but steadied the ship with just three bogeys in his second round scattered among two birdies and 13 pars.
  • Ethan Evans bounced back from an opening-round, 7-over, 78 with an under-par effort in the second round, carding a bogey-free, 2-under, 69, in the afternoon. Evans’ second round was highlighted by an eagle on the par-4 sixth hole and was complemented by 17 pars.
