David Toms has taken over the lead at -10. At the moment Nick Watney, who had the lead at the start of the day, is one stroke back. As I’m typing this, Bubba Watson just hit a drive 341 yards and Sergio Garcia toyed with danger on 17. But don’t worry, 17 got the better of Paul Goydos (Sergio smiled /2008’d). Speaking of Sergio, will his putter be his friend or his enemy?
David Duval opens with a -2/70 and follows it up with a +4/76; he missed the cut.
Defending champion, Tim Clark withdrew after 10 holes with an apparent elbow injury.
Geoff Ovilvy also withdrew with a left shoulder injury after 9 holes.
Rickie Fowler started the day at +5 with a 77, managed to shoot -4/68 while fighting the flu. But his hat stayed on forward. Let’s not get sand in our vagina’s.
Rory Sabbatini is the worst at basically everything.
Phil Mickelson eagled 16. He is currently sitting at -2 after back to back rounds of -1/71. Today Phil was disappointed with inconsistency today. He shot a 31 on the front and the big 4-0 on the back. Speaking of a disappointed Phil, he’s had some things to say as of late. When asked about his performance in the first round, on the 13th hole, Phil had this to say:
“I don’t know what to say. I don’t know if it’s the set-up or the design, but I just don’t agree with that, I thought the question was would it stay up on top and be by the hole or was it going to roll down in the low area? I didn’t know it could possibly go in the water. I think when I design golf courses, I try not to screw the player like that. I try to keep it a little bit fair. I don’t know what I could have done differently. I’m disappointed with myself and my focus throughout the round today. I can do better than that. There were some low scores out there this afternoon today, and I felt like I should have been one of them. But I’ll get out here tomorrow morning and see if I can put it together.
Matteo Manassero, the 18 year old Italian is the youngest player ever to make the cut. He had rounds of E/72 and -2/70.
I can’t find video of this yet, but Michael Bradley has apparently thrown his driver in the water. Some fans dove in after it, and some how he is using it again.
