Freshman Kanoon Bunthanawong from Chonburi, Thailand shot a 71, minus-one, on the day for the lowest score for any Clipper player on the day as he earned a tied for 14 finish at 151, plus-seven.
Sophomore Mark Kilpatrick from Cheshire, United Kingdom, England earned a tied for 26 finish after a 154, plus-10, in the tournament as freshman Evan Hong from Houston, Texas did not record a score on the day after shooting a 77, plus-five yesterday.
