Justin Rose’s lead is now down to five shots after Bill Lunde and Vijay Singh each just moved to 8 under, which begs the question can anyone catch him?
Obviously there’s a ton of golf left with it still early in the second round. But even if Rose builds a big lead, it’s anything but guaranteed to be safe. Case in point: Brad Faxon in 2005.
Faxon entered the final round trailing by seven shots before tying the course record with a 9-under 61 to force a playoff with Tjaart van der Walt. Faxon birdied the first extra hole and won the playoff. -- Brian Wacker
