Round two scores round-up at Open
It was an eventful Friday at CordeValle. Once again, records were equalled and spectators got to see some magnificent golf.
John Mallinger not only equalled the course record by shooting 9-under 62, but he also took a healthy four-shot lead going in to the weekend.
Two consecutive bogey free rounds have really boosted Mallinger’s chances of landing in his first PGA Tour title in seven seasons.
The first round’s leader, Nick O’Hern could not match his Thursday’s performance. The Aussie did not have the best of days, as he shot an even par second round.
Billy Horschel and Jhonattan Vegas shared the honours at the second position, four shots behind the leader. Both of them exchanged their first round scores, as they sit comfortably at 10-under with just two rounds remaining.
The Belgian Ryder Cupper, Nicolas Colsaerts also boosted his chances of earning a permanent PGA Tour card for the next season, as he shot 3-under 68.
The Belgian bomber is currently playing on a special temporary membership but a victory or a top-three finish would certainly guarantee his card for the next season.
Colsaerts is a big fan of American golf. Apart from that, he loves to travel around and this time he plans to explore the land of USA.
"This is all new for me, but every bit of taste that I get when I come over here and play is wonderful," Colsaerts said. "It would be stupid to think that I wouldn't like to play over here".
The Belgian is happy with the way he has been playing so far in the tournament. It is good that he is not over doing on the field, what he really needs is a top-three finish.
"I played pretty good," Colsaerts said. "I had a lot of very good shots early out. I got quickly under par. I was a little bit sloppy in the middle, but I just made sure I did my pars. I had a couple good up and downs and a couple good birdies to finish
The South African, Ernie Els improved from his first round’s performance by carding a 3-under 68. This event brings many good memories for Ernie, so he would surely want to do well.
Meanwhile, Mike Weir’s miserable season continues, as he has missed the cut once again. It is the thirteenth consecutive time that he has missed the cut on the Tour this season.
