FORT WAYNE, IN. (WANE) – Scattered rain showers drastically impacted scores on day two of the Men’s City Tournament Saturday afternoon at Chestnut Hills. Nick Bienz – the leader entering the day at -6 – fired a six-over 78 to slip into a tie for 7th at even par. Meanwhile, Mitch Rutledge and Callahan Elzey positioned themselves for take home a title by moving into a tie for first place at five under.
Both Rutledge and Elzey reflected the inconsistent day of the play. Rutledge who entered the day already in the top five, recorded bogies on holes three, eight and fourteen, but answered each time with birdies to shoot a two-under 70 for the round. Elzey was even more wild. The Bishop Dwenger standout was three-under for the round despite bogies at holes eleven and fourteen. In fact – if not for those – he’d have the outright lead after recording an eagle on the par 5 ninth.
Tyler Hair sits in third just two strokes back at three under. Defending champion Patrick Kelley is tied for fourth with Aaron Walters at -2.
