The Badgers' Jordan Hahn is two strokes off the lead after two rounds at the Badger Invitational on Monday.

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — A scorching front nine Thursday vaulted University of Wisconsin golfer Jordan Hahn to the top of the leaderboard at the 103rd Southwest Amateur.

Hahn, of Spring Grove, Ill., carded a 3-under-par 67 at Desert Mountain Club’s Cochise Course and, at 7-under- 140, gave him a one-stroke lead over Wells Padgett of Wichita, Kan. and Trevor Werbylo of Tucson, who shot the day’s low round with a 5-under 65.

Hahn recorded birdies on three of his first four holes Thursday. Playing the back nine first, he went out in 4-under 31 before shooting 1-over 36 on the front nine.

“I made a whole bunch of putts early in the round,” Hahn said, “which provided me with a great deal of confidence as the round wore on. I made one huge mistake on the fourth hole when I didn’t commit to my target because of the wind which led to a double bogie. But other than that, I played a very solid round of golf.”

The second round was played under clear skies with temperatures in the low to mid 90s, with variable winds.

Padgett, who started the round one shot behind first-round co-leaders George Markham of Phoenix and Sam Dickey of Las Vegas, “never could build any momentum” while shooting his two-under-par 68 on Thursday. “I played defense most of the day because of the wind,” Padgett said, “but I am happy with the result.”

Werbylo, made the biggest charge of the day with his 65 following up a 1-under 69 during Wednesday’s first round. He recorded five birdies and no bogeys in the second round, while hitting 16 greens. “I played very well today, and look forward to the final two rounds," he said.

Entering Friday's third round, seven players are within two shots of the lead, including defending champion Jino Sohn (67-68-135), Dickey (65-70-135), Markham (65-70-135) and Ryoto Furuya (69-66-135) of Tampa, Fla. Of the 88 players in the field, 18 have shot par or better through the first 36 holes of play.

The tournament continues through Saturday.
