Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith came out today with their guns blazing! The fired a stellar -10 under par 62.

Today was a best ball match with both players playing their own ball and the low score of the 2 went on the scorecard.

All the golf writers were saying there will be a 59 shot.

No 59 but we did have a 60 which was -12 under par for Retief Goosen and Tyrone Van Aswegen.

One eagle and a bunch of birdies gave the guys a chance and moved them up into a tie for 11th place.

The scores were so good today that the cut went up to -7 under par. Earlier everyone thought -5 would do it.

We had 6 groups at -10 under par for the day. Wow. Amazing scoring. Tomorrow will be alternate shot and then Sunday will go back to best ball.

I LOVE this format and hope we have more team events like this. The Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup brings out so much excitement and I think they have a winner in New Orleans.

Alone in second place are Patrick Reed & Patrick Cantlay all alone at -14 under par. They will be in the final group with Blixt and Smith on Saturday.

It is so cool to see the great K.J. Choi and Charlie Wi in a tie for 3rd place. I mean, Charlie was all ready to retire when K.J. Talked him into playing this week.

Hope it gives him the confidence to continue.

Also tied for 3rd is the team of Troy Merritt & Robert Streb…….can’t find 2 nicer guys!

It’s so hard to believe all the super teams who missed the cut…..Justin Rose, Olympic Gold Medalist, & Henrik Stenson, Olympic Silver Medalist missed the cut by only one stroke!

Billy Horschel & Matt Every missed by 2 shots, Kevin Chappel, last week’s champ, and Gary Woodland also missed by 2 shots, Jason Day & Rickie Fowler probably the biggest shock as they were the favorites coming in missed by 2 strokes also.

The only thing I am 100% sure of is that Saturday and Sunday’s rounds will be AWESOME! Have fun and enjoy your weekend.
