The top of MPO is fairly crowded with the top ten competitors all within three throws of the lead. Perhaps due in part to two of the event's favorites showing signs of struggle in the opening round. Timo Hartman, the 1022-rated player from Hamm, Germany showed early putting struggles but managed to stay in contention with two rounds to go. He currently sits in twentieth place, five throws off of the leading pace. 

Meanwhile, international-fan-favorite KJ Nybo was still recovering from an injury suffered during Thursday’s practice round, which lead to a 980-rated three under opening round.
