Cameron Beckman and Blake Adams are in the clubhouse and atop the HP Byron Nelson Championship leaderboard at 10 under, a score that may well hold up for the second-round lead given the tougher afternoon conditions at TPC Four Seasons Resort.
Here are a couple of ShotLink notes on Beckman and Adams showcasing why each one is faring so well through two rounds:
>> Beckman outperformed himself in a number of statistical categories in the second round compared to his 2010 season averages. Statistics include converting nearly 6 more birdies, needing almost 6 fewer putts, and draining nearly 45 more feet of putts today than 2010 season average.
