Today was a tough one at The Northern Trust, tough to score and get close to the pin.

Glen Oaks is one of those courses where it is almost impossible to find 4 fair pin placements over the 4 day tournament.

Wide fairways but miss the first cut and you are in 4″ of LUSH rough.

Tied for 1st place are Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, & Jhonny Vegas.

The last group will be Jhonny Vegas and Dustin Johnson, two extremely long hitters. Thank goodness the next to last group is Rickie Fowler & Jordan Spieth.

I think that will help them because it is tough playing with guys who hit the ball as long as Dustin Johnson. This is a golf course that could hold an US Open one day. That’s for sure!!

Rickie shot a 33-33=66 and if he continues this play he could very well win this tournament or win the thing. Rickie wants nothing less than the FedEx Cup.

Jordan fires 35-30=65 and birdied the first 5 holes on the back side. Loads of birdies and 2 bogeys make him look good to win. It’s going to be a very interesting weekend!

Dustin Johnson was only -1 under par today with a 69 that included 2 bogeys and 3 birdies. He needs to step it up the last two rounds to have any shot at the Fed Ex Cup.

My dark horse today was Jhonny Vegas.

My goodness a clean scorecard with 5 birdies and 13 pars to give him an amazing -5 under par 65 today when the pin placements did not favor any of the fellows!

Matt Kuchar and Bubba Watson are tied for 5th place but only one shot out of the lead.

We are going to have a SUPER exciting moving day on Saturday please watch if you can!

Enjoy this weekend of super golf I know I am going to for sure!!!!!
