Rhode Island’s Andrew O’Leary is in a tie for fifth place, while his Notre Dame Fighting Irish lead the Windon Memorial at Lake Shore Country Club in Illinois.
In what might be his best outing of the season so far, O’Leary is four-under par after the first round and a half of the tournament.
Play was suspended for the day while O’Leary was on the 16th hole in the second 18.
The Fighting Irish lead the tournament by one shot after day one. They are 10-under par overall, one shot ahead of South Florida.
Davis Chatfield is in a tie for 39th.
After shooting 69 in the opening 18, O’Leary opened the second round with six straight pars before finally getting a birdie to drop on the seventh hole.
He gave it back on the next hole to make the turn at even par.
On the back side, O’Leary knocked down three straight birdies on holes 12, 13, and 14, before bogeying 15.
Play was called with O’Leary on the 16th tee.
Following a first round 72, Chatfield opened the second round with four bogeys in the first five holes with a birdie mixed in.
However, the 2016 RI Amateur champ rebounded.
Chatfield birdied the sixth hole and ninth hole to shoot 37 on the front.
He sank a birdie putt on 13th hole before play was called.
