Tway continues to lead after second round of GHC
While some things change, some remain the same.
Bob Tway, who held the lead after the first day of the Greater Hickory Classic with a 9-under-par round, continues to lead the tournament by one stroke. He fired a 5-under-par second round to put him in the lead at 14-under-par.
Despite a large tie for second place yesterday, Tommy Armour III is in sole possession of second. He is one stroke behind Tway at 13-under-par.
James Mason and Chip Beck, who came in the day tied for 16th, are in third place at 12-under-par. They had the second-best rounds of the day at 7-under-par. Only Frankie Minoza, who shot 8-under-par in round two, had a better round.
Minoza moved from tied for 59th to tied for 15th with the strong round.
Five players matched Mason and Beck's 7-under-par round, including Tom Kite, Craig Stadler, Corey Pavin, Larry Mize and John Huston.
Reidsville native Mike Goodes, who set the GHC record for lowest score in the first nine holes in Friday's first round, is tied for seventh with Nick Price and Jeff Sluman.
Defending-champion Gary Hallberg, who struggled with a 1-over-par first round, recovered to shoot 4-under-par in the second round. He stands at 3-under-par in a tie for 60th.
Fifteen players remain within four strokes of leader Tway, making Sunday's final round possible one of the most dramatic in the history of the Greater Hickory Classic.
