"Today the conditions were harder," said head coach Nick Dilio. The wind was blowing, which made the course play tough. Our goal was to win the tournament, which meant we had to play aggressive. Knowing we were eight shots behind the leaders, this may have contributed to higher scores than yesterday but overall I thought we played well."
Jeffery Peters (72-77=149, +5) and Jose Cardona (75-74=149, +2) followed Winter, shooting a 149 each. Stanley Garrant finished with a score of (74-77=151, +7), while David Powers shot a (79-74=153, +9).
