5:03 p.m.: Alabama media relations just sent out a few comments from those involved in today’s play. Here’s a sampling:
Coach Jay Seawell:
“I feel really good about the round. I didn’t realize the golf course was playing that hard until I looked at a scoreboard on 14. I was really proud of the guys. I feel like they grinded out a nice round today, when it was easy not too.”
Sophomore Cory Whitsett:
“The pins were a little tougher today, but they were fair. You could get at them, you just have to hit a really quality shot. The lack of wind early helped me a lot, obviously, the wind picked up late in the round, but it always does here.”
4:52 p.m.: Oklahoma dropped off a little and UCF gave back a stroke. Bottom line: Alabama trails by two strokes long after its round ended. Oklahoma is one stroke behind the Tide at 5-over for the tournament.
4:26 p.m.: Alabama is two strokes behind co-leaders Central Florida and Oklahoma. Both are still very early in their second round. The Golden Knights are 4-under today while the Sooners are 3-under. Better scoring conditions in the afternoon it appears.
3:37 p.m.: Iowa and Central Florida are making moves now. Both are 4-under today and hold a two-stroke lead on Alabama. You can still click here if you want to follow the live leaderboard.
2:49 p.m: Alabama completed its round tied atop of the second-day scoreboard. The Tide led by as many as five strokes earlier in the day before finding trouble in the second nine holes.
Florida, who took the lead without touching a golf club this morning, just began its round.
2:18 p.m.: The Tide is one stroke off the lead as it enters the final few holes of its second round. Florida leads, but hasn’t seen the course yet today.
1:46 p.m.: Alabama fell out of the top spot as it reaches the end of its second round. The Tide is now tied for fourth at 6-over (4-over for the round). Justin Thomas had double bogey on the 14th hole.
1:26 p.m.: Just a quick update on Auburn … the Tigers went from a first-place tie to 28th in a matter of a few hours. Auburn is now 14-over par today and 18-over for the tournament. Alabama still leads by one stroke.
1:13 p.m.: Tide lead down to one stroke and is 2-over today.
1:03 p.m.: The Tide dropped one stroke to reach 2-over for the tournament and 1-over for the day. The lead is still two shots.
12:43 p.m.: Still not a whole lot of movement. Alabama still leads, but is back to even par for the round. The lead is still four strokes on the teams currently on the course.
12:23 p.m.: Alabama’s lead is up to four strokes after making the turn at 1-under par for the round. No team on the course is within five strokes of the Tide.
12:11 p.m.: Justin Thomas is now alone in the lead at 3-under. As the final Tide golfer makes the turn, Alabama is right where it started the day — 1-over par.
11:51 a.m.: Now Oregon is dropping back. Alabama maintains its lead at 2-over with the Ducks back at +6 as the top challenger on the course.

11:24 a.m.: Oregon is making the biggest move of the day. The Ducks are 3-under for the day and within two strokes of Alabama (+2). Florida is also hanging tight at 4-over watching from the clubhouse. The Gators won’t tee off until later today.
11:15 a.m.: Unless there’s a glitch in the scoring, Auburn has completely fallen off the map in the last 40 minutes. After tying Alabama for the lead, the Tigers are now 10 strokes off and tied for 16th. A double bogey and quadrupedal bogey seem to be the blame. See the scorecards here.
