Soderberg had a bogey on the par four 4th hole, but rallied with birdies on holes seven and nine to make the turn at 1-under. A birdie on the par 5 11th got Soderberg to 2-under before bogeys on holes 12 and 14 pushed him back to even par for the day.

Roberto Ballesteros rocketed up the individual leaderboard, going from a tie for 59 into a tie for 30th with an even par round, shaving eight strokes off his first round score. The junior has a 36-hole score of 8-over 152. Ballesteros was 1-under par through 10 holes before a double bogey on the par 5 11th.
