Aylwin posted a 68 in the first round to trail the leader by two heading into the second round. He then fired a 70 in the second round to jump in front of the field by one stroke with one round left to play. Paul Melson, the 2001 Public Links Champion, looks to win another title after firing a 68 in the second round, the low round of the day. Melson, of Plantation, recorded a 71 in the first round to sit one stroke shy of the leader. Lance Gillett, from Cocoa Beach, Thomas Murray, from Orange Park, and John Adcock, of Plant City, are tied for third place each recording a two-round total of 140. Defending Champion Jon Veneziano, of Mount Dora, moved ahead with a second round 69 to share seventh place with three fellow competitors. Veneziano shot a 74 in the first round to be five strokes back from Aylwin.
