The Chattanooga Mocs shot seven-over par 295 to stand in ninth-place at the Old Waverly Collegiate. The Mocs were an unofficial one-under par through 15 holes of round two which is suspended until Tuesday by darkness.

Benni Weilguni (Langenlois, Austria) hit all 18 greens tallying a three-under par 69 and is in third. Brooks Thomas (Chattanooga) is tied for fourth at 70, while Stuart Thomas (Knoxville, Tenn.) comes in tied for 12th at 73.
