Australian golfer Adam Scott is heading into the weekend with a 7 shot lead, at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Scott seems to be in control of his game, and his 4 under par round of 68, helped him pull away from the rest of the field in round 2.
It wasn’t as easy on day 2, however Scott was able to add to his 10 under par score after round one, to get to 14 under par. Scott found 6 birdies in round two. He birdied holes 6-9-11-12-15 and 16 in his second round.
He only made 2 bogies and they came on holes, 7 and 18. Scott has only made 3 bogies in the first two rounds of the tournament.
He tore up Bay Hill’s par 5’s in the first round making eagles on two of them. He was able to improve his DRIVING ACCURACY in round 2, bringing up his average to 85.71% from 71.43% in round one.
Scott putter wasn’t working as well in round 2, his putts per GIR was up a bit and that could be the difference in his scoring between rounds.
If he continues to play as well as he did in the first two rounds, he is going to be hard to catch this week. Scott isn’t making the mistakes that would allow himself to come back to the field.
Scott is not only leading the tournament, he has now taken over the top spot of the World Golf rankings by taking away the title of the World’s number one from Tiger Woods.
