HOUSTON, Texas - Sophomore Keven Fortin-Simard shot a 36-hole 8-under-par to lead all individuals after the second round at the All-American Golf Classic on Monday and help the University of Memphis men's golf team finish the day in fourth place.

Fortin-Simard, who did not play in the Tigers first spring tournament earlier this month, scored an opening round 3-under 69 and then followed with a 5-under 67. The 67 matches a career low for the Roberval, Quebec native.
