Joe Mitchell 11 13

The All Pro Tour golf pros, at the halfway point at the Victoria Open.

The host pro for the tournament, Joe Mitchell, PGA Director Of Golf at Victoria Country club, Chooting a second round 72. He is at six over and missed the cut. Curtis Reed shoots a second round 68. The Castroville native is at nine under and remains in the lead by one shot over Zach Bauchou. After shooting an opening round 64, Jacob Bergeron shoots 73 Thursday and is now tied for 11th. He told me how he is dealing with the heat and the wind.

“As far as the wind and the heat, everyone has to deal with it. We’re just taking it all in stride. The wind just makes it a little bit interesting. You just try to keep it a little low and run it. That’s what you’re supposed to do in Texas, right. We need to stay hydrated as best we can, seek shade, wear light clothes. It’s all we can do.”

Final round of the Victoria Open is Saturday. First place check is worth $25,000.
