Afternoon players to watch at AT&T

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

BETHESDA, Md. -- Scoring remains difficult here in the second round of the AT&T National, where no one is exactly running away from the field in the morning wave.

Don't it expect it to much different in the afternoon, especially with some pop-up storms potentially hitting the area at some point. Here's a look at who to keep an eye on (all times ET):

Jim Furyk, 12:27 p.m.: Mention the U.S. Open and a lot of people understandably tend to think of Furyk. With Congressional not playing much different than it did two years ago, it's no wonder Furyk is in contention at 2 under heading into the second round.

Rickie Fowler, 12:27 p.m.: Save for a double bogey in the opening round, Fowler played well on Thursday. He also should have some good vibes from a final-round 64 he shot last week.

Billy Horschel, 12:39 p.m.: The harder the golf course, the better Horschel plays. At least that's his thinking, and Congressional is just that with a lot of U.S. Open mentions being thrown around. He's 3 under heading into Round 2 and is playing the best golf of his career right now. Expect him to stay in contention going to the weekend.

Nick Watney, 12:39 p.m.: On the one hand, Watney has missed his last three cuts. On the other, he's won this event before (albeit in Philadelphia) and was under par in a difficult opening round.

Nicolas Colsaerts, 1:02 p.m.: He leads the TOUR in driving distance, something that has come in handy around a long, soft golf course this week.
