Kevin Na is in control of the Crowne Plaza International at the half-way stage at Colonial.
Kevin shot a second round -4 under par 66 at Colonial, to sit on top of the Crowne Plaza International leaderboard at the half-way stage, with a -10 under par total.
Kevin celebrated sinking a 22-foot birdie putt at the 13th hole during Friday’s second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, with something only usually seen on Sesame Street episodes, the Big Bird Dance;
“It just came out, I wasn’t really thinking about it. When the crowd went wild on that hole, I gave them a little show.”
“I’m just having a lot more fun, obviously, if you’re playing well, it’s easier to have fun.”
“But I let the bogeys not bother me as much, and I’m swinging it well, my ball-striking is the best ever.”
Ian Poulter is in second place, carding a second round -3 under par 67, for a tournament total of -8 under par.
Poults is happy with the way things are going;
“I hit a lot of good golf shots. I’m pleased with the way I played the last two days.”
Boo Weekley is in third position at -7 under par for the competition despite only carding a -1 under par 69 today. He put his early mistakes down to his stiff back problem that has plagued him all week, today it did not loosen up until the fifth hole;
“I hit it left, but at least that swing felt like all right, now we’re back.”
“Now we’re getting where we can kind of work it around this golf course a little bit.”
Defending champion Adam Scott needed to make up ground in order to reach the weekend, and did so with a bogey-free -4 under par 66, which raised him to T25 at -2 under for the competition.
Adam said he had played well, but reiterated once again that poor putting let him down;
“I played really good today, I just couldn’t buy a putt coming in.”
Jordan Spieth got a case of the jitters today, signing for a +3 over par 73, leaving him with a -3 under par total, and T15;
“A couple bad swings was all it was, I feel good on the golf course, I just didn’t see many putts go in and got off with the long clubs.”
