World number one Jordan fired a magical bogey free -9 under par 64 at the par 73 Glendower course in the  Hyundai Tournament of Champions at the half way point of the competition, to lead by four shots at -16 under par for 36 holes;

“Did I see 16 under? Probably not to start the season.”

“I go from leading by one to leading by four, and that’s huge.”

Second place is shared between three players at -12  under par, Patrick Reed, Fabian Gomez and Kevin Kisner, they were all bogey free today.

Kevin also shone brightly today, with -8 under 65, while Fabian carded -7 under 66 and Patrick, feeling the heat from Jordan could only manage -4 under 69.

Kevin asked after the round what was Jordan at?

“What’s Jordan at? I saw he was at 15.”

“He’ll probably shoot another 15 under, so I better get going tomorrow, the way he plays.”

“We’ll just make a bunch of birdies and see what happens.”

“First tournament of the year, kind of rusty, haven’t played in a while.”

“Seeing where my game is, I’m looking forward to having a chance on the weekend.”

Danny Lee, from New Zealand holds fifth place on his own at -11 under par, following his second round score of -5 under par 68, which sadly contained three bogey’s.

Rickie Fowler and Steven Bowditch both scored bogey free rounds of -6 under par 67 and were another shot back at -10 under par for the tournament.

Rickie spoke about the easier conditions today;

“It’s a little less windy, so the golf course was a little bit more gettable.”

“I played better today, got the ball closer to the hole, so I had more opportunities at birdie.”
