Fred Couples was 8 under after a 69.

Retief Goosen was tied for 18th at 6 under after his second 69 in his senior debut.

Gary Nicklaus, also making his first tour start, followed an opening 67 with a 77 to fall into a tie for 49th at even par. The 50-year-old son of Jack Nicklaus is playing on a sponsor exemption.
