Jason Allred went birdie hunting in round two of the inaugural event of the eGolf Pro Tour West event at Southern Dunes. His second round 9-under, 63 vaulted him to a four shot lead over round one co-leader, Nathan Tyler.
Allen, has also teed it up in 10 events this season on the Web.com Tour, making the cut in five of those events.
His best result, T6 at the Albertson's Boise Open, where he once again went low in the second round (63), on his way to earning $23,443.75.
The former Pepperdine University star played bogey-free golf in round two. Opening with a par before birdying two of his next three holes. The par-4, 3rd and par-3, 5th. Following those up with back-to-back birdies on holes seven and eight. Making the turn at 32.
Allred would follow up his front nine, by quickly finding more birdie opportunities on 10, 12 and 13. Taking him to 7-under par on his round. Making that five birdies in his last seven holes at that point in his round.
Two more birdies on 16 and on the finishing hole would bring him in with a 31, and 9-under on his round. Catapulting him into the lead. Four shots clear of Nathan Tyler, Riley Arp and Michael Derminio in second place.
This low round and leading will not be a first for, Allred. In 2012, he fired an opening round 64 to take the lead on the Web.com Tour's Miccosukee Championship in Miami.
First Round co-leader Nathan Tyler didn't quite have the round as he did in his opening round, where he carded a 7-under, 65. Though he did card a 2-under, 70 to stay near the top of the leaderboard heading into tomorrow's final round.
Tyler, along with Meierdierks, Arp and Dermino, will need to create more birdie opportunities in round three if any have hopes of chipping away at Allred's four stroke lead.
