SAN ANTONIO, TX (July 9, 2016) -- Thanks to second round 6-under 66 Colby Harwell has taken the second round lead at the San Antonio Amateur. Harwell, 6-under overall, leads Kane Ybarra by a stroke.
Harwell shot a first round even-par 72 and was three off the pace at the beginning of the day. Out of the gates Harwell faltered with a first hole bogey. However, the dropped stroke ended up being his only one of the day as he went on to birdie seven holes.
From holes 4-6 the 2016 Carlton Woods Invitational winner birdied three in a row to move into red figures. On the back nine Harwell carded birdies on 11, 13, 14 and 16 as he shot a bogey-free 4-under 32.
Kane Ybarra is in second place after rounds of 69-70 to reach 5-under. First round co-leader Aaron Flores is in third place at 4-under. Flores has had rounds of 69-71.
Danny Simmerman (-3) is in third while Alex Bissar and Bobby Baugh, one of four to share the Friday lead, are tied for fifth at 2-under.
