The second round of the Valero Texas Open is a little over halfway through, which means some former Tech golfers have already finished their days. Bryce Molder had a difficult day (+2), but still sits at -2 and within 4 strokes of the lead. Thompson faired a little better with a +1, but he now sits at E on the day. Although Troy Matteson sits at +1, he went -3 on the day and put himself in position to make the cut. The projected cut is +1, so he looks like he’s in good shape.
Kuchar has played 4 holes, but is at +2 for the tournament, so he’ll have to start making some birdies to get back into the hunt. Castro, Duval, and Tringale are all well off the lead, sitting at +6, +7, and +7 respectively. Barring a huge day from one of them, they will all miss the cut and go home early. I’ll post all four of their final scores when they finish and let you know if they made the cut.
