Honda Classic – 2nd Round

What a difference a day makes in Florida.

Opening-round leader Luke Donald posts a +4 round of 74, including an ugly quadruple-bogey 8 on the 14th hole. He’s now tied for 12th at 2-under par. The clubhouse leader going into Saturday is Englishman Brian Davis, who was bogey-less on his first 15 holes of play, until a double-bogey 5 on the 7th (started on back nine). Davis carded 3-under 67 for the round.

Scott Hoch and Fred Funk may not be winners this week, but they’ve got it made. Both players are over 50 years of age and play regularly on the Champions Tour, but get to play PGA Tour events as well from time to time. Hoch’s and Funk’s relative youth make them odds-on favorites at Champions Tour events. Moreover, they get to try and wet their beaks in larger purses on the PGA Tour.

Scott Hoch made the cut at 3-over par and will be in for some money. Fred Funk will probably be back on the Champions Tour winning an event real soon.

And finally, The Bear Trap made a clear victim out of Chris Stroud, who put 3 balls into the drink on #15. He ended up carding a quintuple-bogey 8.

For the 15th hole today, there were 18 scores of double-bogey or higher and 16 balls found the water. That's a total of 45 balls finding the drink so far and more errant shots to come.

Hi Jeff, thanks for visiting my blog and the comments. Gee, it's been a while since I last checked my blog. Been busy writing. Not about golf unfortunately but politics. Argh!! Election is back. Hope I won't lose my swing in the process. Yup, will try hitting straight. Cheers!
