Corey Conners carded a front-nine 29, tying his career-low nine-hole score on Tour, and made six consecutive birdies, (Nos. 5-10), the longest streak of his Tour career and the longest streak on Tour this season. All six birdie putts in that stretch came from inside 5 feet.

Rory Sabbatini was disqualified for a violation of Rule 4.1 (non-conforming external attachment to the face of a club).
