Dow's day was highlighted by an eagle on the par-5 18th, putting the ball in the cup on one bounce from 93 yards out. Tyree started her day with a birdie on No. 10, and proceeded to shoot 1-over on her first nine. After two of the three rounds, Dow is tied for 33rd at 3-over and Tyree is tied for 46th at 5-over.
