Ree shot 4-over-par 76 Thursday, which brought him to a two-day total of 1-under-par 143. After posting a 6-over-par 42 on the back nine (his front), Ree rebounded making birdies on Nos. 4, 7 and 8.

 

“I tried to forget about the front nine and tried to make birdies coming in.” Ree said.

 

One shot back is Jordan Niebrugge of Mequon, Wis., who shot 2-over-par 74 to finish with a two-day total of even-par 144. Kyle Kochevar of Glen Ellyn, Ill., is in third after carding a 3-under-par 69 to sit at a two-day total of 1-over-par 145.

In the Girls Division, Garces leads by one stroke. She started the round slowly, recording bogeys on Nos. 10 and 11, but managed to keep her head in the game recording birdies on Nos. 1, 3 and 12.

 

“I concentrated on two-putting each hole and the birdies started to come.” Garces said.
