Matt Bettencourt held a one-stroke lead later Thursday evening after heading into the clubhouse, but Peter Tomasulo surged late and birdied the final hole to force a tie at 5-under in the 2013 Valero Texas Open. Both players were sharp in Round 1, combining for 11 birdies and just one bogey.
Bettencourt will have a chance to break the tie early on Friday morning. He gets the action underway with a tee time at 7:20 a.m., along with David Lynn (even 72) and Charlie Wi (5-over 77). His co-leader is set to start two hours later, as Tomasulo will tee off with Gary Christian (5-over 77) and John Peterson (2-under 70) at 9:20 a.m.
Golf Channel will air coverage of Round 2 from 3-6 p.m. and later on Friday night from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. SiriusXM is also providing coverage from 12-6 p.m.
