Shooting a -6 under par 64 in Friday’s second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship has put Brendon in command of this event after two rounds. His -8 under par total has put a two shot gap between him and second place, which is being shared between no less than eight players. So far this season the Web.com Tour graduate Brendon has struggled to put more than two good rounds together in a tournament, tomorrow will be a stern test for him.
“It’s nice to put two under-par rounds together before the cut, that’s been a challenge for me this year. I feel like my game was good enough to play well this week all four days. In the past, I’ve always had a hiccup before the cut, so my goal is, if the red numbers are out there, let’s do it. Excited to be in the last group on the weekend.”
Among those eight in the following group at -6 under par is last weeks winner Martin Kaymer, who shot a another -3 under par 67 to remain in contention here. Paul Casey is another who is sharing that spot, Paul put together a magnificent second round of -7 under par 63, his back-nine score of 27 tying for second-lowest back nine in PGA TOUR history.
Paul said that he did not keep track of what he was doing on that back nine;
“I had no concept of what I was doing, the seal was broken when I got to ten, it just spiraled from there. I like to think I would be pretty good at shooting low rounds of golf through the past, but certainly nothing like that.”
Just take a good look at his card.
Martin Kaymer reported that he was feeling relaxed, and was taking his good form with him, warning that he may have emptied his tank from last week, but tomorrow it will be full again;
“I think if you had a good week, obviously you can take a lot into the next week, you play a little bit more free, a little bit more relaxed. Tomorrow morning, it will be full again.”

As you can tell the leaderboard is very compacted, so anything could happen on moving day, someone is bound to go low.
