The topic for weeks was scoring. Fendrich hosted the first two rounds as several greens at Helfrich needed repairs. A short, flat course in dry conditions? Stunning numbers were discussed.

This conversation was quickly squashed, with the weather being a constant factor. What happened in the first two rounds, however, should still lead to an intriguing final weekend.

A handful broke away from the peloton with a strong start to the 93rd City Tournament. David Mills finished 12 under through Sunday to lead Nathan Hoss by two strokes with 22 players finishing tied or better.

The numbers at the top were nothing to complain about. There were still red numbers to be had. The best players have found them.

“(The rain) softened things up and the course played a little longer,” Mills said. “It’s probably good for me because I’m long compared to most competitors. A few weeks ago, if you were on the wrong side, goodbye.
