The TOUR Report
By PGATOUR.COM staff
Lucas Glover and Boo Weekley took advantage of soft conditions to jump up the leaderboard at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans on Friday.
Glover carded a 5-under 67 to take the lead at 12 under at TPC Louisiana. Weekley had a 68.
Glover has made six of 10 cuts this season, with a season-best T4 at The Honda Classic. Since, he's missed three of five cuts.
Weekley opened with an eagle on the 10th hole (his first of the day), holing out from 105 yards for a 2. Weekley, who has two top 10s this season, added four more birdies.
The resurgent former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover and Boo Weekley are setting the second-round standard at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Both players, who opened with 65s, are 5 under through 13 and 14 holes, respectively, and four strokes clear of the field.
Who are some of the players who could challenge in the afternoon? Who'll be fighting to miss the cut? PGATOUR.COM takes a look at some players to watch — and you can tell us your favorites in the Comments section below.
Ricky Barnes (1 p.m. ET): The overnight leader tied the course record with a 64 on Thursday. Can he defy conventional wisdom that holds it's hard to follow a really low round with another and close the gap on Glover and Weekley?
D.A. Points (1:40 p.m. ET): My, how things change. The Shell Houston Open champ was two shots off the pace after the first round but now finds himself six shots in arrears.
Nick Watney (1:30 p.m. ET): The 2007 Zurich Classic champ shot a solid round of 69 on his 32nd birthday. He'll need to go low to position himself for a weekend run at another title in the Big Easy.
Jason Dufner (1:30 p.m.): The defending champion will start the second round at 2 under — one stroke ahead of the projected cut. He's broken par in 10 of his last 11 rounds at TPC Louisiana.
Charley Hoffman (2:20 p.m. ET): He's tied for third and sixth in his last two starts but begins the second round of the Zurich Classic on the cut line after a 71 on Thursday.
