Anthony Siefker (-12) was in second place after the first round, but didn’t have the round he wanted on Thursday. He shot an 82, beating his projection by one.

“All in all I didn’t have a bad day, I just caught some rough breaks,” said Siefker.

Though he said, “it did make me respect the course more.”

Siefker will set out Friday with the same game plan that worked for him on Wednesday, with the hopes that the breaks he sees are mostly good.
