PCCC: Three-Way Tie For First After Two Rounds

Three golfers are tied for the lead heading in to the weekend at the Charity Championship.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Mother Nature held off just enough on Day Two of the Charity Championship to allow 78 golfers, that's half the field to finish their first rounds. That included Andrew Svoboda who separated himself from a log jam at -6 to finish as the round one leader with an 8 under 64.
 
Randall Hutchison actually started the second round as the leader as Svoboda faltered early.

Meanwhile Michael Schachner was one of those finishing round one on Friday, finally heading in to the clubhouse at -7 at about 12:45. But he couldn't rest too long. He started his second round 45 minutes later.

"I'm used to this you play 36 holes for U.S. Open qualifiers," Schachner said. "You play 36 holes in college.  I'm used to this.  You try to stay hydrated and eat along the way to keep the energy and stay relaxed."

Andrew Loupe bombarded the front nine with three birdies and an eagle to take a two stroke lead but bogeyed at the turn and missed an easy birdie on 11,

Meanwhile 2010 winner Hunter Haas pushed himself in to the lead with a birdie on 18.

And here's Hutchison making the turn on there too, that approach helped him to an eagle, putting him two strokes off the lead,

With plenty of golf left in the second round, three men took the clubhouse lead.

Haas missed a birdie to finish round to but heads to the weekend at -12.

No golfer has ever won the Charity Championship twice.

"There's always a first for everything," Haas said, "I scored under par, this is probably my best course out here on tour."

He played with Alex Prugh who shot a 63 with no bogies. He also misses a birdie to finish but is sitting pretty with Haas.

"You definitely feed off each other," said Haas. "I don't even think he made any bogey's out here today.  I didn't have any bogeys either. There's definitely a vibe there we just kind of feed off each other.  And its good to see the ball go into the hole." 

Miguel Carballo birdies 18 to tie Haas and Prugh.

After missing a handful of cuts here at Highland, he can finally stay for the weekend.

"He's never made the cut here," said David Walker, Carballo's caddie and translator. "He's always played OK but the it was always a low cut."

Two strokes back is Andrew Loupe, and Daniel Chopra is also at ten under, he still has five holes left to play on Saturday morning.
