Sergio Garcia has found something in his putting stroke that has been missing for at least 4 years. For the second week in a row Garcia is in contention in a PGA Tour Event. Garcia and Watney are tied at the top of the leader board with a host of players tied for second place including the old man Vijay Singh. At 49 years young Vijay is no stranger to chasing the Fed x Cup, He was the FedEx Cup Champion in 2008.
Nick Watney had a bumpy day at Bethpage, his second round included 4 birdies 4 bogeys and 1 eagle to keep him on top of the leader-board. Sergio had a more conventional approach to moving up the board, he had 4 birdies and only 1 bogey on his way to a 3 under par 68 to go with his first round 66. With the projected cut at plus 1 there are a host of players including Jim Furyk who won’t be around for the weekend.
Phil Mickelson finds himself tied for 53rd after a 3 over par round today. Tiger Woods is in a tie for 8th after posting a 2 under 69 and is 5 under par for the tournament. The Big easy Ernie Els had a good second round but finished at 1 over today and is tied for 28th. There is still a lot of golf left at Bethpage Black. The biggest shock on the day has to be the way Padraig Harrington fell off the top of the leader-board. Harrington finished his day with a 4 over par 75 after shooting 7 under in the first round. Harrington had 5 bogeys and 1 birdie in his second round.
