“It was a great day. Hit the ball really well, I know it was really nice to see some putts fall on that back nine. I think I made three nice putts in a row there from like 10 to 12. And then just kind of really hit some quality shots coming in to give myself some easy birdies.

“[The wind] was tough early and it kind of died on our back nine a little bit. It was off and on, but it was a good wind for, like the easy holes were playing a little easier but the hard holes were hard. So you just had to make a couple pars and then get to those downwind holes.”

Frenchman Paul Barjon playing alongside Hodges, carded a 65 for his share of the lead.

“Great round,” said Barjon. “Started pretty good with four quick birdies and then, yeah, a little bit of a slow down here in the middle, six of the 18 holes and then a good finish with some good shots and good putts, so that was exciting.

“It was a little breezy for probably about 14 of our 18 holes and then it kind of died down a little bit at the end there. But downwind it’s hard to stop the ball, so definitely you have to play pretty smart and we’ll see what the weather has for us tomorrow.”
