Andrew carded -7 under par 65, another bogey free round, this time on the Nicklaus Tournament Course to top the Career Builder Challenge leaderboard with a -16 under par total, for the 36 holes played.
Tomorrow he faces the tough Stadium Course, with unfriendly weather forecast;
“I know it’s supposed to be blowing tomorrow, but I think I have really good control of my golf ball right now, so it shouldn’t be too big of an issue.”
Special features of Pete Dye’s Stadium Course include more square footage of water than fairway, and more sand than putting surface.
Jon Rahm, Spain, holds second place, -5 under par 67 on the Nicklaus course today gives him a -15 under par total, just one shot behind the leader, but Jon was not happy with the way he played today;
“I expected myself to go to the range and keep flushing everything like I did yesterday.”
“Everything was just a little bit off. It was just one of those days.”
Jason Kokrak also played the Nicklaus course, carding -5 under 67 for a total of -14 under par, and third place on his own;
“I’ve given myself a lot of close opportunities.”
Two of the low rounds of the day went to Zach Johnson and Michael Kim, both went round the Nicklaus course in -8 under par 64, and share fourth place at -13 under with Martin Piller who carded -5 under par 67 on the infamous Stadium Course.
Zach keeps an eye on his stats;
“I’ve seen the numbers. I’m kind of a stat guy, because they don’t lie.”
“I’m seeing some things that I’ve never really seen before in my game, that’s encouraging.”
