Marc Leishman followed up his fabulous -9 under par round of 62 on Thursday with a -7 under par 64 Friday. This course surely fits his eye. 31 going out and 33 coming in gave him a two day total of -16 under par and a solid 3 shot lead.
Jason Day came back today with a healthy back and went low again with 2 eagles, one was a hole in one, and fired a -6 under par 65. Sweet swinging and a real threat to win this week. It’s been a while as Jason has been trying to get back on the road to the Fed Ex Cup title. He even let his long time caddy go this past week and has an old friend on the bag. He former caddy Colin is still his swing coach and practically a father to Jason.
Rickie Fowler fired a nice 33-31 for a two day total of -13 under par. He has two days to catch up and see if he can get a win this week. Even Rickie had an eagle today on the driveable par 4 #15. Rick his his drive to 9 1/2 feet from the hole and he drained it for an eagle 2.
Patrick Cantlay is showing what he is made of this week. Going out in 30 and coming back in with a 35. That round only included 1 bogey and that was on the par 4 #12.
Patrick is a very cool young man and definitely one guy everybody is looking at. He has that Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas feel. Boy this sport is in really great hands right now.
I just found out that Charlie Hoffman and Phil Mickelson are the only 2 who have qualified for the BMW Championship since the Fed Ex Cup inception. Pretty great if you ask me. I really never thought about it but it makes sense. A lot of these young men playing weren’t even pros when the FedEx Cup playoffs started.
Sit back and relax we are going to see some very special golf this weekend.
