Krywulycz, who's currently completing collegiate studies at Augusta State, built upon his opening round of 73 to be currently at 3-over-par for the tournament, fifteen strokes behind the second round leader, Kevin Foley.
Foley fired a tournament equalling low 9-under-par, 61, during the first round and carded a second round 2-under-par, 68, to have a six stroke margin over NEC Master of the Amateurs Champion, Mark Anderson, who is in a tie for second position at 5-under with Brendan Gielow and Brian Harmon.
Michael Smyth, the best Australian after opening with round of 1-over-par to be in a tie for 21st position, slipped back the leaderboard with a second round 3-over-par, 73, to be at 4-over for the tournament and in a tie with Krywulycz.
Symth's round was a mix affair with two birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey six on the 373 metre par 4, 18th. Krywulycz, in contrast played solidly with four birdies through five holes on the back nine, his momentum destroyed with a costly triple bogey on the 427 metre par 4, 12th.
Ray Beaufils is a shot behind Smyth and Krywulycz at 5-over-par, following rounds of 72-73. Jin Jeong finds himself well down in the field after posting scores of 75-72, to be in a tie for 58th position.
