Koepka birdies the par-5 8th and he’s now eight under total and in third. Stone is in with a 68 but he’s six under for the week and T5. Kuchar finishes one over for the week and likely to miss the cut. Bubba Watson shoots 78 and will absolutely miss the cut.
Spieth sticks his approach into the 9th green well inside of his playing partners. He’ll have a good look at another birdie from about 10 feet. It seems like the afternoon wave is starting to kick it into gear after a rough start. Birdies are dropping.
The sheer number of red numbers on the leaderboard was a pleasant surprise. Rickie ZJ DJ JDay all in the mix on the first page. That’s all we want in a major championship isn’t it? Well that and Tiger contending. But even he isn’t so far off that it’s out of the question.
So far only two players in the afternoon wave are taking advantage of the good conditions: Jason Dufner and Y.E. Yang. Both are -2 through 3. Both are former PGA Champions.
GREAT putt for TW for his second birdie in a row. He’s back to +1 on the day. JT taps in for par to stay at -3. Rory’s birdie attempt ends up just short and he taps in for par.
