OOLTEWAH, Tenn. (AP) — Beau Hossler had a 4-under 68 in a second round that featured eight birdies Thursday to tie Grayson Murray atop the leaderboard at the 108th Southern Amateur.

Hossler, from Mission Viejo, California, birdied two of his final three holes at The Honors Course to match Murray's 36-hole total of 138. Hossler will be a sophomore at Texas this fall.

Murray, from Raleigh, North Carolina, had grabbed the first-round lead with a 66. He shot a 72 on Thursday.

Will Starke of Chapin, South Carolina, is one stroke behind the leaders. Trevor Cone of Concord, North Carolina, briefly led Friday before falling two strokes back. Cone golfs for Virginia Tech.

The winner of the 72-hole event earns a spot in the PGA Tour's Arnold Palmer Invitational.
