We started the day at (-6) for the event. Getting off to great starts always helps jumpstart the round. Ryan hit a nice pitching wedge from 141 yards to about 4-5 feet and made the birdie to go to (-7)

A difficult long putt on the 13th hole led to a three putt bogey to drop back to (-6) for the event. I told Ryan lets just bounce it back and from 106 yards Ryan hit wedge to birdie range and made the putt. 

On the 17th hole (Our 8th) Ryan hit a 6 iron that somehow came up short in the hazard. The hole plays significantly far downhill into the sun so it was hard to see it land. So Ryan had to go to the drop circle and managed to get up and down from 102 yards for a great 5 footer for bogey. 

We were inbetween wedges on the 18th hole and came up just short from 99 yards. Ryan again told me to remove the flag stick and chipped it in from about 6 yards for birdie to make the turn at (-7) for the event. 

The 2nd hole (Our 11th) yielded a wedge that spun just off the front edge from 98 yards. Ryan chose to putt it and rolled it in for birdie to go to (-8) for the tournament. 

The 3rd hole was a wedge from 123 yards to about 20 feet. The putt broke about 3 feet from left to right. Ryan put a great read on it and knocked it in to get to (-9). 

The 8th hole was a 6 iron from 173 yards into the wind to 35 feet. It was a putt up and over a mild ridge. It broke a foot or so from left to right. The putt had great speed and was dead center with 3 feet to go to get to (-10) for the tournament. 

The last hole was a par to shoot (-4) 68. It was a very tough day with the conditions being windy and the course firming up. It was also very slow time wise so it was hard to stay in great rhythm. But Ryan played extremely well today on top of doing the same yesterday. At (-10) we are T3 just one shot out of 2nd and 5 back of first.
