    MCKINNEY, Texas - Junior Mitchell McLeroy struggled to close out the final three holes Tuesday afternoon in the second round of the Southland Conference Championships at Stonebridge Ranch Country Club, but he is still in the hunt for the individual title. McLeroy carded a three-over 75 in the second round, but is second overall with a two-day 145.
