"In the wind like this, it's not so much about momentum as it is about patience and control," Bryant said.
"Anybody can win," Eger said. "Eight under, we just start off with the lead. By the time we tee off we could be behind."
Leonard Thompson, who shared the first-round lead with Tway, struggled most of the day, shooting a 5-over 77 that dropped him into a tie for 26th at even par.
