eGolf Tour Florida: David Tepe Grabs Lead After Round Two

Another tough test in round two at the eGolf Tour's inaugural Orange Tree Open, that saw no golfer on the course break 70 today.

Liberty Township, OH. native David Tepe carded an even par 72 round today to take the lead heading into the final round by two strokes over first round leader Peter Campbell and a three stroke lead over Christian Brand.

Tepe, who struggled on the front nine making the turn at 2-over 38, which included a bogey to open his round, followed by a double bogey on the oar-4, 6th -- Was able to right the ship and card three birdies to only one bogey on his inward nine.

A birdie on the closing hole may be just what Tepe needed to carry some good thoughts and momentum into tomorrow's final round.

Campbell, who is making his second start on the Golf Tour event since 2011, teeing it up in nine tournaments that season, held the over night lead from round number one also struggled on his opening nine. Carding two bogey and doubling the par-3, 5th to make the turn at 3-over, 39.

A solid back nine which included just one bogey to one birdie kept him in the hunt heading into Wednesday's final round, trailing Tepe by two strokes.

Brand, who carded a 1-over round 73 in today;s action is just three strokes off the pace and in good position as well ready to pounce if either Tepe or Campbell were to stumble in tomorrow's final round.

The West Virginia native has racked up four top-15 finishes in his last five events. Including his runner-up finish last week at the Lee Westwood Golf School Open.

Ready for tomorrow's final round, it's Tepe at 2-under leading by two over Campbell and three over Brand.
