Oberholser posted a second-round 72 on the par 70 Southern Hills Country Club course. He has a two-day total of even par 140 and is a sixth-way tie for ninth place.
Tiger Woods, whom Oberholser defeated for the individual title at the 50th annual Western Intercollegiate at the Pasatiempo Golf Course in 1995 when Woods was a sophomore at Stanford, moved into first place with a second round seven-under par 63. Woods, who has a 134 total, is two strokes ahead of American Scott Verplank.
