Peter Fallon is four strokes behind Donahoe after the first day. Fallon opened with a 76 but rebounded with a second round of even-par 72. Ben Hargis fired rounds of 76 and 77 and has a 153 through 36 holes while Luis Lemus is one stroke behind with a two round score of 154. Dustin Thompson struggled in the opening round with a 79 but took three shots off in the second round to post a 76.
