Roets, playing in his first tournament of the season after not qualifying for any in the fall, shot a 2-under par score of 69 in the opening round and followed that up with a 73. He is alone in third place and only two strokes off the lead after the first day. Hudson, playing in only his second tournament of the year, is tied for fifth place after back-to-back rounds of 1-over par 72.
