Three Tritons are among the top-10 individual standings with Jay Lim in second and Lewis Simon and Ryan Rankin tied for sixth. Lim is one of just three players below par with a 3-under, 141. He fired a 71 in the opening round and followed with a 70 in the second round on the par-72 course. Simon shot a 71-75--146 while Rankin carded a 73-73--146.
