Fort Gibson grad Tanner Owens shot a 2-under 68 on Tuesday after a first-round 74 and is in a cluster of golfers in 26th place in the 88th U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship.

Owens’ rally advanced him to today’s match play at the Laurel Hill Golf Club in Lorton, Va.

Davis followed a first-round 65 with a 69 and is at 6-under 134. Talor Gooch of Midwest City was fifth at 137, five strokes back after his 69. The 36-hole championship is Saturday.
