He gained 33 spots on the field and now sits in a share of 25th as of night fall Friday. Play was suspended due to darkness on Friday night with 17 players left to finish their second rounds. Third round pairings will be made after the second round is complete.
Brad’s two under total total puts him just four strokes off the lead co-held by Kevin Streelman, Charley Hoffman, and Steve Lebrun.
