SAMMAMISH — Three players took decidedly different routes to sharing the lead after 36 holes and the first day Monday of the Sahalee Players Championship at Sahalee Country Club.

Byron Meth, a senior at the University of the Pacific and the champion of the West Coast Conference, took the most consistent route, with a pair of 2-under par 70s.

Jay Hwang, a senior at UCLA, posted the biggest comeback, leaping over 16 players with his 68 in the second round after opening with a 72.

And in between was Mark Anguiano, a senior at Cal State-Fullerton, who had a 71 in the morning and a 69 in the afternoon to join the other two at 4-under 140.

Nine players in the field of 68 are under par, and 20 players are within five shots of the lead. Aaron Wilkin (70-71) of Australia and Owen Taylor (73-68) of Sacramento State are a stroke behind the leaders.

Two local players — Carl Jonson of Bainbridge Island and Charles Kern of Mercer Island — are at 1 under.
