Two More Rounds To Glory

Oakland Hills lets nobody off the hook. Even after a weather delay on Thursday made a Friday more attractive with softer greens, only one player remains in the red and perhaps rightfully so, it’s big hitting J.B. Holmes and his 311 yd. Driving Distance avg. that leads at 1-under.

That can all change, depending on the weather and how the course dries out throughout the day. Don’t be surprised if some players make big jumps up and down the leaderboard. Meaning that even guys like Corey Pavin (currently +10), Rocco Mediate (+7) and Ernie Els (+6) still have a chance to make a run to the top.

Talk about a tale of two 9s, South African Charl Schwartzel (who started Friday from the 10th tee) went 4-over on the front and then 4-under on the back, with 4 straight birdies on holes 4 thru 7. It was good enough to make the cut and leave him at +7 for the tournament.

My man-crush on Jeev Milkha Singh continues, even after posting a 4-over 74 yesterday. Currently tied for 7th, he’s still in the hunt. He’s got a nice easy swing and always seems to put up a decent fight in Majors, like the T25 he had back in April at Augusta. Go Sir Jeev!
