David carded a second consecutive round of -5 under par 65, to lead the Quicken Loans National with -10 under par after the 36 holes;
“It’s definitely as tough as advertised.”
“It happens quite a bit actually that the two-round score ends up being pretty close to the final winning score.”
“That’s not necessarily always the case. So I’m hoping to keep plugging away, making more birdies over the weekend.”
“Still 36 holes to go so looking forward to the weekend. I’m pleased with where I’m at.”
“It’s so important to hit the fairways out here. I’ve been doing a decent job of that the first couple days.”
Geoff Ogilvy, Australia, holds second place, two shots back at -8 under par, a -5 under 65 today keeping him in touch of the leader.
Geoff took full advantage of the calmer morning conditions, and flawless greens to birdie three of his first four holes;
“That 7:15 tee time is pretty early.”
“You’ve got to get out of bed pretty early, but once you get out here it’s always nice.”
“It was the perfect morning to play golf, it’s always nice to be under before you’re over on a course this hard.”
“I have to get the job done here, back in the day when I was top 50 in the world, you have long-term exemptions, I would have considered going to play France this week.”
Daniel Summerhays holds third position, a -2 under 68 today leaving him four shots off the pace at -6 under, with two rounds to go.
