The RBC Heritage presented by Boeing has a 24-year-old superstar Bryson DeChambeau, leading after round 2.

The “scientist” as he has been affectionately nicknamed was zeroing it in today.

Bryson fired a -3 under par first round and today shot a 64 which is -7 under to get into double digits.

10 under par is a very good score after 2 rounds of golf on this “short” course, compared to others on the PGA Tour.

The biggest equalizer would have to be the greens.

Smallest on the tour and that may sound better but they are TOUGH to zero in on.

The good news is when you hit the green in most instances you have a chance to make the putt.

Bryson started par and then eagles the short par 5 #2.

A couple bogeys and a few birds to round out the first nine for a -3 under par 33.

The back nine was a little less dramatic with 5 pars and 4 birdies to end with a 31 and total of 64.

My favorite stat on Bryson’s first 2 rounds is that he was 4/4 in sand saves.

That is a really great way to save a bunch of strokes. He even ended up on 18 with a sand save.
Bryson announced his turning professional right after the Masters 2 years ago and mad the RBC Heritage his first professional event.

He finished in a T4 and made a bundle of money that week.

It looks like he could make a boat load of cash this week. He would be a very popular winner!

Ian Poulter and Si Woo Kim are tied for second place and only 1 stroke behind.

Poulter enjoyed hearing that the last 7 winners at Harbour Town came from behind after 36 holes.

Poulter’s 64 was the lowest round he has ever shot at Harbour Town.

Perfect weather and not much wind tends to help the scores.

Saturday is looking good but we have some BAD storms coming in Sunday afternoon.

I am sure if the forecast stays that way they will probably start on the front and back Sunday to get the round in.

We don’t know anything yet but as soon as an official forecast is put out the PGA Tour will let us know.

We’ll have to mention that it is Friday 13th and a couple weird things did happen out on the course.

One thing you only see once in a blue moon is Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar, & Wes Bryan all missed really short putts on #17.

That gave them bogey, bogey, & double bogey. My goodness it was hard to watch!

The craziest had to be Kelly Kraft on the tough par 3 #14 when his ball was heading for the green and it hits a “big black” bird.

That’s what Kelly said. Robert Garrigus ran to find a rules official because he thought Kelly would get a “do over”.

Well when I play its called a mulligan lol lol. No such luck only do over is if you hit a power line running across the fairway.

That double bogey cost Kelly a chance to make the cut.

The cut was even par and the double bogey left him at 1 over for the first 2 days missing the cut by 1.

Lots of things happening out here. Don’t miss all the action the rest of the weekend.
