FAIRFAX, Calif. (July 10, 2013) -- Before this week, Clovis’ Bryson DeChambeau had never seen the Meadow Club, but after his second straight 65 Wednesday, he is feeling right at home.
He has a four-shot lead going into the final day of the 110th Trans-Mississippi Championship presented by TaylorMade-Adidas.
DeChambeau, who was second in last month’s California State Amateur and just finished his freshman year at SMU, has a 10-under total of 130 headed to the 36-hole final day under sunny skies and cooler conditions.
The 130 mark is four better than Austin Cook, who was 6-under through 15 holes in the second round. Trevor Simsby of Carlsbad, Calif. is also tied for second place.
Cory McElyea, who last month played in the U.S. Open before defeating Dechambeau for the California State Amateur title, shot 3-over Wednesday after a first-round 62 and is tied for fourth.
Jonathan Schnitzer, who nearly broke the competitive course record at The Meadow Club with a first-round 61, struggled early in his round on Day 2 and sits tied for sixth place.
Also in sixth place is a pair of California Golden Bears standouts Brandon Hagy and Max Homa.
