Jared Nicholls from The Winston Golf Club shot the round of the day, a 4 under 68 to grab the top seed.

2-time defending champion Brendan MacDougall from The Glencoe Golf and Country Club shot a 2-over 74 and will face Michael Valk from the Connaught Golf Club in the round of 16 on Wednesday morning.
