Brendan Steele leads the suspended second round of the Valero Texas Open with a 36 hole tournament scoring record.
Brendan carded a second round -2 under par 70 to top the Valero Texas Open at -10 under par, with a new tournament 36 hole scoring record of 134, when darkness halted play for the day.
The softer greens made approaches a little easier, and couple that with just 52 putts for the two rounds, equals success;
“To see it play a little bit softer and with a little less wind, my eyes kind of lit up.”
“It always plays so difficult, firm and fast and the winning score is just a handful under par, usually.”
“To see it soften up a little bit, I knew it was good.”
“I always lean on my driving, that’s kind of the best part of my game as a rule and out here it’s so demanding on every hole that the guys that spray it a bit are really in trouble and normally I drive it pretty straight and long so the combo is pretty good out here.”
“I definitely feel comfortable here, even other than the win, I’ve had a couple other good results here.”
“It’s always nice to come back to a place that you feel good at.”
Three players are tied in second place, at -7 under par for the tournament, Scott Langley, -4 under 68 today, Stuart Appleby, -2 under 70, and Charlie Hoffman with a -1 under par 71.
New professional on Tour, Bryson DeChambeau, missed the cut here at Valero, posting +3 over par for the two rounds, lets just hope that this is just a temporary blip. Actually yesterday I found out that I have been blocked from Bryson’s Twitter account, @b_dechambeau if you are in touch with Bryson on Twitter, perhaps you could ask him why @dragonputter has been blocked, I would like to know.
