Rickie Fowler rises to the top of the Honda Classic leaderboard at PGA National.
Rickie achieved top spot at the Honda Classic with a second consecutive -4 under par 66, for a -8 under par total, needing only 26 putts in the second round;
“I’ve been swinging well.”
“It’s nice to hit fairways, hit greens, especially in places like this where it’s very demanding tee-to-green.”
Jimmy Walker finished birdie-eagle to cap his second round off, carding -4 under par 66 and secure second place on his own at -7 under par. He made an unlikely birdie on the difficult par four 9th hole, after an indifferent tee shot into the right rough, making a great putt;
“It was big, I didn’t hit a very good drive there and caught a good break in the rough and hit a great shot.”
“Finally made a good putt. Got a good read, made a putt.”
In third place on his own at -6 under is Sergio Garcia, with a more modest second round total of -1 under par 69.
Sergio missed the cut at Riviera, but this week his putter is working OK;
“Yeah, it feels good, just one bad putt on the first hole, I hit too hard and my second putt was good.”
Adam Scott is in contention again, at -5 under par, and playing well, and is getting more confident;
“Last week kind of confirmed that things were on the right track.”
“I definitely saw things I wanted, a couple things I wanted to work on after last week that I felt under the heat of contention Sunday weren’t as good as I would like.”
“Tried to work on them a little bit Monday and Tuesday. They feel good so far, so we’ll test it again this weekend.”
“It’s starting to get really solid, and I’ve got to just keep doing that and let the confidence build.”
“That’s how you get to a major and guarantee you can put yourself in that position Sunday with a chance, and that’s what I did for a few years, and I’d like this to be the start of that run.”
“That’s what I’m trying to do.”
Rory McIlroy has missed the cut, it seems that the top players in the World have lost their Mojo. Phil Mickelson got in on the number +3 over par.
