SFO MPO Round 2 Recap - Moving Day Madness in the MPO division - ABSOLUTEXTRACTS PRESENTS THE 2019 SAN FRANCISCO OPEN DRIVEN BY INNOVARead Now
The MPO division came out shooting hot looking to advance on a day where the wind was almost a non-factor for the midafternoon rounds. The wind would pick up late in the day which led to players laying up their putts and playing conservative on their drives.
In possibly the story of the weekend, James Conrad carded back-to-back eagles on holes nine and ten and then followed it up with a two-putt bogey after going OB on the 8th easiest hole coming in at only 302ft. He would take another OB bogey on island hole 16 before finishing his round at -9 in a tie for 5th place.
Chandler Fry was also able to move up the leaderboard carding a -9 on the day. He started the round slowly with a few pars but was able to avoid the OBs and carry a 100% scramble rate to move up 20 spots into a tie for 13th
Eagle McMahon also had a banner day carding an -10, no OBs, and a less than stellar 20% C2 putting rate. He was able to move up into a tie for second place with teammate Simon Lizotte and yesterday's leader Anthony Barela. He will be in prime position to make a push for the win on championship Sunday.
Ricky Wysocki was the one who stole the show today. He started the day one off the lead in a tie for second place. On the front nine, he would only card two pars to finish -7 at the turn. Hole 10 things turned as Ricky went OB off the tee. It would take a few minutes to make a ruling though as he needed to tie two strings together to string between the OB stakes to tell. He would end up taking a par on the hole. Ricky's only other OB would be in the sand bunker on hole 15. Ricky finished the day -12 which helped him to move five throws ahead of the field.
Last year's champion Paul McBeth quietly held the course and is in position to have a longshot at a repeat tomorrow. He went -7 on the day which kept him solidly in 5th place on the chase card. He is seven throws away from first, but as we have seen with previous rounds, anything can happen when Paul McBeth is on a tear.
Make plans to tune in and watch the final round action live starting at 6:30 PM ET tomorrow.
