Si Woo has a -12 under par total after two rounds of the Wyndham Championship, which puts him on top of the leaderboard. A fantastic second round of -10 under par 60 quickly elevated him into the lead, it could have been a 59.

Good iron play and better putting were key, he spoke about aggressive play on the last for a chance of 59;

“My irons and putting game is much better,much more putting practice last week.”

 “That’s better, just putting.”

“Tee shot aggressive, yesterday, hit 3-wood, but today just try to hit driver.”

“Hit driver and then missed left. Just tough, tough lie and tough pin.”

“I’m trying before like 10 yards, 15 yards landing, but almost hit the green landing. Putting, really fast down grain and just trying to make par, but almost close there.”

“Not so much celebrate today. After this week, play good, I celebrate.”

“I’m not thinking too much like for later and win, just trying today my putting, my shot.”

“That’s it.”

Four players are tied in second place, two shots back at -10 under par, Kevin Na, -3 under 67 today, Hideki Matsuyama and Jim Furyk both had -6 under 64, and Lucas Glover, who had a chance of scoring -11 under 59, but three putted the final hole for a -9 under 61.

Kevin is pretty happy with his position on the leaderboard;

“I’m in good position for the weekend.”

“Keep attacking those flags and we’ll see.”

Lucas also missed a last-minute putt, his was for a 60, he settled for -9 under 61, maybe the seven week break he had has something to do with it;

“I kind of lost of concentration a little bit, got eaten up in the moment and kind of just wasn’t focused.”

 “My fault, stupid, but it happens.”

“Five weeks of playing, little golfed out.”

“Wanted some family time and took some family time and just had a situation with my father-in-law couple weeks ago, so withdrew from the Travelers Championship.”

“He’s doing better, so here we are.”

Jim, who shot a 58 last week, was surprised at the low scoring today;

“I’m a little surprised how low the scoring is.”

 “The fairways are pretty firm. They’re extremely quick, have a lot of slope in them.”

“If you get the ball in the fairway, it’s playing short, the ball is rolling. I can see guys hitting lot of wedges. I’m still shocked we had so many guys going that low.”

Importantly the top 125 in the FedExCup standings will qualify for The Barclays next week at Bethpage Black, so a good finish is urgently required by some players.
