Michael and Andrew carded -3 under par 69 in the alternate shot format to lead the Zurich Classic by one stroke at -13 under par.
Andrew explained the golfing relationship with Michael;
“We ham and egged it well.”
“When one person hit a bad shot, the next person hit a good recovery. Wasn’t our prettiest golf, but that’s what we did.”
“I probably hit it into places Andrew has never seen before.”
In second place are Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown, shooting -2 under 70 today for a tournament total of -12 under par.
Kevin and Scott are longtime friends;
“We would love to get a trophy together, we grew up together and are long-time friends, so it would be fun to win together.”
“We’ve won a bunch of tournaments together, so we’re looking forward to the weekend.”
Third place is shared between two teams, Chad Campbell & Matt Jones, -2 under 70 today and Nate Lashley & Rob Oppenheim with a second round -3 under 69. both teams at -11 under par.
Neither Chad or Matt have won in a while, but they are relaxed about it, Chad saying;
“I think we just believe in each other. We’re both relaxed out there and very confident. If one of us hits a bad shot the other one can recover from it.”
“Golf is a crazy game. Never know when it’s going to turn around.”
