Eagles, Birdies, and Bogies from Round Two of WACO

The second day of the Waco Annual Charity Open provided plenty of excitement with perfect scoring conditions leading to some phenomenal rounds. Here are the best
and worst moments from Friday.
The Beast is the definition of risk-reward. If a player is aggressive, there are opportunities for eagle throughout the course. Friday’s action saw eagles from Paul McBeth, Devan Owens, Bradley Williams, and Lance Brown on hole 15 including a phenomenal 50-foot putt from out of the woods from McBeth to go 10-under through his first nine holes. Garrett Gurthie got the lone eagle of the day on the 558 foot, hole course hole three with a phenomenal drive and a 38-foot putt.
There were plenty of birdies to be had on Friday but no one scored more birdies in the women’s field than Sarah Hokom. Hokom’s eleven birdies catapulted her into a six-stroke lead after shooting an impressive seven-under, 61 on the day.
Friday was the day for birdie streaks and some of our top competitors had a pivotal hot stretch that was key to their success. Both Jeremy Koling and Paul McBeth shot nine holes in a row under par to place them in first and second place going into the final day. Nate Perkins is in a tie for second after birding the last four holes of the course to finish with a 13-under, 54 on the day.
With scoring opportunities so prevalent on Friday, one bad hole could make or break a round. This was the case for two of the games best, Catrina Allen and Ricky Wysocki. Allen four-putter and tripled bogeyed hole one to put a blemish on her otherwise solid round. Allen finished at 2-over, 69 on the day and sits nine strokes out of the lead. Ricky Wysocki had a double bogey on course hole ten, losing a battle to the wooded monster. Wysocki is in a tie for tenth place but without those two extra marks on his scorecard, he would be in a tie for fourth.
