Drugan takes Fischer lead
The field of 200 was cut to the top 73 for today’s 36-hole finale at Riverside Golf Course.
Nobody made a bigger move than Keegan Drugan.
The Holmen resident fired his second straight 6-under par, 66 to open up a four-shot lead over Janesville’s Sam Van Galder (136) and Madison’s Max Hosking (136). Janesville’s Ryan Coffey (138) is tied for sixth, six shots back of Drugan.
Drugan shot a 5-under 31 on the front nine and added an eagle on the par 5, 14th.
“The first two rounds have been a lot of fun,” Drugan said. “The conditions have been ideal to put up good scores, and fortunately, I’ve been able to take advantage.
“I’ve give myself a chance heading into tomorrow, and that’s what you want to round en route to a second-round 69. He lipped out a birdie putt on 17, but saved par from off the green on 18.
“I thought it would take four rounds of 68 to win this thing and that’s exactly where I’m at,” Van Galder said. “I played kind of conservative today, but tomorrow, I’ll probably attack (the pins) a little bit more.
“A lot can happen with 36 holes, so you have to just take it one hole at a time.”
Hosking, a former Big Eight and Ashenfelter Invitational champion, holed out for an eagle on his first hole en route to a second-round 65.
Coffey put himself into contention with a solid second round. The former Janesville and Madison city champion had six birdies, including birdies on all four par-5.
“I played a little better today,” said Coffey, who had a 2-under 70 in the opening round. “I putted pretty well and gave myself plenty of opportunities.”
Three other Janesville golfers made the cut at 2-over, 146. Matt Behm, the 2006 Fischer champion, is at 146. Jordan Brovick had a solid 2-under, 70 on Saturday and is at 142. Janesville’s Michael Hesselman is at 145.
First-round leader Brent Quade shot a 75 after an opening 65 and is eight shots behind Drugan.
