Greg Allen Quote
"We made a lot of pars today, when we needed to make birdies to stay in the hunt. With the field that is here and the way the golf course is set up to go low, we've just got to be able to get more putts to drop and to get more birdies. Hopefully, that will happen for us on Saturday."
