Jordan Spieth, the #1 collegiate player in the country according to GolfWeek rankings,  is not playing for the Longhorns in this tournament because he played in the Northern Trust Open PGA event at Riviera Country Club in Los Angels, California.  Frittelli, who is ranked second in the national individual rankings continued his fine play and posted the low score for the Longhorns. 

The second round is being played on Monday and the final round will be Tuesday, Feb 21.
