Sorry for not getting you a recap of Round 2 yesterday. I dropped my cell phone in the toilet (pre-urination), had to go to the cell phone store, coached a basketball game, and then made an unexpected stop at a local watering hole after the game with my coaching staff which, mind you, has been labeled the biggest and best coaching staff in the city of Cleveland… Anyway, now a little something about, you know, golf.
John Rollins has managed to make his way to the top of the leaderboard after starting the round in second place. Rollins shot a -2, 70 for a overall score of -12. That is good for a three shot lead over Camilo Villegas. Villegas who started the round alone in first place to start Saturday, found some trouble in the sand throughout his day. When on the Par 5, 9th he again found himself in the sand. Then on his next shot out, he flew the green, which capped off a double bogey to finish his front 9. He posted 2 birdies, 13 pars, 2 bogeys, and 1 double bogey for a +2, 74. Overall not terrible, but he’s lucky to be in 2nd place.
The crazy thing is that Rollins could have shot much better. He started the day by making birdie on 2 of the first 4 holes. He then three putted for bogey three times. All of which came in the final seven holes of the round, including a bad lip-out on the Par 5, 18.
There’s a whole mess of guys lingering, but it’s going to be difficult to make up 5 or more shots in one day. Some of the notable players hanging around: Luke Donald -6/T4, Paul Guydos -6/T4, Aaron Baddeley -4/T9, and J.B. Holmes -2/T15.
The shot of the day may have come from Paul Guydos. He holed out a sandwedge on the final hole of his round. If Guydos could put up some of the scores I see him put up in TW09 then he’d be a top 10 player.. That guy is always near the top of the leadrboard in tournaments in that game.
