In 102nd place after 18 holes, Ancer is tied for 17th at 2-under 211 with 18 holes to go. He got off to a rough start, making double bogey on the second hole. But he responded with birdies on Nos. 3, 10, 11 and 18 to record a 2-under 69.

Viktor Hovland (OSU)

The former Cowboy and soon-to-be pro shot an even-par 71, with three birdies (Nos. 3, 14 and 18) and three bogeys (5, 7 and 9). He is tied for 27th place at even-par 213.

Rickie Fowler (OSU)

Fowler made up some early ground with birdies on Nos. 3, 6 and 7, but gave it back with bogeys on Nos. 9, 10 and 15. His even-par 71 left him tied for 33rd at 1-over 214.

Charles Howell III (OSU)

Howell’s birdie on the second hole would be his only one of the day. He made bogey on Nos. 7, 14, 17 and 18 to shoot 74 and is tied for 48th at 3-over 216.
