Tyler Sabo of Ashland, Ohio, did what many juniors could not on Wednesday, finish under par. He was one of just eight golfers in the 75-player field to accomplish that feat in the second round, carding five birdies, good for a 4-under-par 68. Sabo really excelled on the back nine where he scored four of his five birdies. He sits at 5-under-par 139 for the tournament.
Below Sabo in second is round one's leader, Cade McLaughlin of Princeton, New Jersey, who shot 1-under-par 71 Wednesday afternoon. That leaves McLaughlin at 4-under-par 140 through 36 holes with eight birdies on the week. Wyatt Plattner of Sarasota, Florida, crept into the top three after round two with two birdies on the last seven holes leaving him at 2-under-par 142.
Rounding out the top five are Aksel Moe of Sarasota, Florida, and Mason Dean of Duluth, Georgia. The pair are tied at even-par 144 in fourth. Moe battled back from a double-bogey on No. 1 with two birdies and an eagle to get to 1-under-par 71 on the day. Dean matched the best score of the day with a bogey-free 4-under-par 68.
Elizabeth Rudisill of Charlotte, North Carolina, and Karoline Tuttle of Lake Mary, Florida, both sit at 2-under-par 142 through the first 36 holes. Rudisill carded two birdies and two bogeys for an even-par 72 to hold onto her 2-under-par score from Tuesday. Tuttle carded two birdies to just one bogey for a 1-under-par 71 on Wednesday.
Clare Gimpel of Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, the first round leader, fell to third with a 4-over-par 76 in round two. She sits at 1-under-par 143 for the tournament.
In fourth, Cindy Song of (China) Waxhaw, North Carolina, led the Girls Division in the second round with a 3-under-par 69 to get to even-par 144 through the first two rounds. Rounding out the top five was Chaewon Jeong (South Korea) of Alajuela Centro, Costa Rica, who shot 3-over-par 75 Wednesday and sits at 2-over-par 146 for the tournament.
