Birdie’s on 15 and 18 have put Jay Choi in a position to challenge in the third round. Jay lead the tournament by 2 stroke’s after the first round, but 2 bogie’s and a double derailed his run and left him in a tie for 5th. Jay made 5 birdie’s to finish at -1 for the day and -7, 2 shots behind the leader Masaya Tomida who shot a blistering 7 under par in the second round to finish at -9.
Jay is -8 after 2 round’s on the par 5’s, playing them like par 4’s. He has 6 birdie’s and an eagle and one par. A 3 putt (his 2nd) double on the par 3, 12th slowed his run until he birdied 15 and 18.
