In second place was Grier Jones, winner of last year's Hawaiian Open and Robinson Classic, whose 3-under-par 68 was good for a two-round score of 138. Canadian George Knudson was next with a 67-139, a stroke ahead of a group at 140 that included Leonard Thompson with a 69, Jerry Heard with a 71, Jim Wiechers with a 73, and Jerry McGee, whose 66 matched Irwin's as the lowest round of the day.
