Gary carded -6 under par 65 today at the OHL Mayakoba Classic in Mexico, to top the leaderboard after 36 holes at -13 under par;
“It was nice to have an off-week last week. Went out and spent some time with Butch.”
“After the wedding there, kind of got a little rusty I think.”
“Took some time off, but nice to get back in the swing of things. Very comfortable with where I’m at right now.”
Webb Simpson claimed second place, just one shot back at -12 under par, he also had -6 under 65 today, but needed to make some good par putts;
“Well, today was a lot different from yesterday. Today was a bit of a struggle with some distance control.”
“I had to chip a lot more today, so today was about scoring. I was able to score, made some putts when I needed to for par.”
“Yesterday I don’t remember missing any greens and today I missed quite a few, so very different day but same score.”
Third place belongs to Scott Piercy, -5 under 66 today giving him a -11 under total;
“I felt pretty good about my game. Just kind of plodding along and trying to pick up birdies where I can and kind of keep the scorecard pretty clean.”
“Felt pretty good. Just trying to pick up some marbles on the way and count them at the end of the week and see where we fall, so it’s been good.”
Home favorite Abraham Ancer scored -3 under par 68 to be T 4 at -9 under for the tournament;
“It’s been really fun. I played really well on Monday and I’ve been playing really well this week.”
“Hopefully I can take that on the weekend, but no, I’m enjoying it. Have some family here and a lot of friends so it’s awesome.”
Defending champion Graeme McDowell just made the cut, on the number following a disastrous opening round 75 with a -6 under par 65 today, to get to the -2 under cut line.
Jim Furyk was not so lucky in his first event of the new season, shooting 74-70 to miss the cut with +2 over par for the competition. Ian Poulter was another to miss the cut, with 72-69 for -1 under.
