PONTE VEDRA BEACH (Fla.) Chad RameyAt the Players Championship, he was the only player to break par by a double digit. As usual, the TPC Sawgrass won the final decision.
Ramey hit two tee shots into the water at the island-green 17th green hole Friday to earn a quintuple bogey, which cost him a 3-shot lead in a day of wild swings, and eventually, wild weather.
The second round was stopped because half the field couldnt finish due to a storm system which is expected to dump half an inch of rain on Players Stadium Course.
Christiaan BezuidenhoutSouth Africa and Adam SvenssonCanada and Canada shared the lead at eight-under par. Both are doing their best to stay on top of this course. They didnt make any bogeys Friday — Bezuidenhout through the 14 holes, Svensson through the 11 — and they only have one for the week.
Ben GriffinThe clubhouse leader was he. The former mortgage loan officer was having a difficult time in Bermuda late last season. He was playing an exceptional round and took double bogey on his last hole for a 1-under-71.
Morikawa said, Kinda happy this rain delay and thunder came into and let the putter rest and hopefully come out warm tomorrow.
To complete the second round, players were required to return at 7:01 a.m. Saturday. The third round will be for threesomes on both tees. It should finish before sundown. This depends on the pace of play and some factors like Sawgrass.
Jon RahmYou missed all of these. The worlds No. The worlds No.1 player was sick with a stomach bug, and withdrew around 30 minutes before his tee. This puts his ranking in danger. Scottie SchefflerAnd Rory McIlroyHe will be beaten.
Scheffler wins the advantage. He looked shaky in his first round but quickly settled into his round. He birdied the Nos. 9th and 10th holes of the day prior to the suspension. 9 and 10, to reach 5 under. When play resumes, he will have a 15-foot eagle shot on the 16th.
McIlroy took a double-bogey on the sixth and was at 6 over for tournament. McIlroy had eight holes to cut down on the 4 strokes likely to be required to make it to the cut.
Rahm made every cut last season. His last missed cut on the PGA Tour at Fortinet Championship was September 2021, just before the Ryder Cup.
In the second round, there were some severe punishments.
Start with Max McGreevyHe was 20 shots worse than his first round. He shot 89, which was the wrong type of course record for the highest score at TPC Sawgrass. He was followed by 89-shotting player, Michael CampbellIn 2003, the first round.
Viktor HovlandFor his round, he was 5 under through 11 hole. He even got a break after his tee shot at the par-3 17th bounced off of the wooden frame on the island and onto his green. He ran into trouble on his last seven holes, and ended up with a 71.
Hovland was also at 4-under 140 Will Gordon(67) and the resurgent Jason Day(70), a former world No. 1 who is slowly making his way back. Day started the year at No. Day started the year at No. 112 in the world. He could make a big leap this week to ensure he remains in the top 50 for the next two weeks to qualify for the Masters.
As for Jordan SpiethHe saw his tee shot in midair on the par-5 ninth hole and decided it was time to empty his locker. It hit a spectator in the leg, and bounced back to his fairway. Spieth hit 3-wood to reach the collar of green and chipped in with eagle.
This allowed him to salvage 75 points and was safe enough to make the cut.
Spieth, who was playing at even-par 144, said that he had a very lucky break on 9. Trying to get the information of that guy and see literally everything he wants this weekend. Because everything is because it hit him.
Ramey opened with a 64 and birdied two of his first three holes to reach 10 over, extending his lead to 3 strokes. After his quintuple par on the 17th, Ramey had to make a 30-foot putt on the 18th to save par. He then dropped another shot on that hole with a wild drive to his right. He was at 4 under with eight holes remaining in his round.
