Adam fired a second round -7 under par 64 to lead the Valspar Championship at -10 under par.
Adam was happy with his putting, he rolled in another confident putt from just inside 10 feet for birdie at 17;
“That was certainly something you don’t think is going to happen but I hit a lot of good shots today, especially five in a row there, 10 through 14.”
“It’s nice to see the ball-striking kind of come around and the putter stay where it has all year.”
“I gave myself a ton of looks out there. I hit a lot of fairways, as well, which makes it a lot easier to attack some of these flags, and the putter stayed hot and I made a few more putts than I did in the first round.”
Jim Herman is in second place, coming down from his low round yesterday settled for an even par 71 today, to stay at -9 under for the championship.
Tyrone Van Aswegen , from South Africa is in third place at -8 under par, with his second round -6 under 65.
Tied in fourth spot at -7 under par are, Dominic Bozzelli, -3 under 68 today, Russell Henley, even par 71, and Henrik Stenson, also even par 71 today.
Henrik had a distraction on the course today, a nice distraction, he smiled as his young daughter Alice ran on to the fairway, to say hello;
“The family drove up from Orlando today to hang out a little bit, so I see she’s on TV again now.”
“Not the first time, she likes to be inside the ropes, like you guys.”
“I can’t complain with too much, ball-striking, yeah, I’m not quite where I want to be, but we’ve got time to work on that.”
