Early movers: Weekley, Karlsson, Micheel

Boo Weekley is finally starting to get healthy and it’s showing in his game. After battling back and shoulder problems much of the year, Weekley has put together some solid results the last couple of months with three finishes in the top 12 in his last six starts. That positive momentum is continuing here in Memphis, too, where Weekley is 5 under through his first 13 holes in the second round. He has yet to make a bogey today and has missed just one putt inside 10 feet while making a couple of putts beyond that range.

Shaun Micheel, meanwhile, has also moved into contention. After successfully making it through the 36-hole U.S. Open qualifier here in Memphis earlier in the week, Micheel has played his first 13 holes today in 3 under. That gets him to 5 under and within two of the lead.

Others going low in cool, soft conditions: Robert Karlsson, who started on the back and turned in 31 after four birdies, and Jason Dufner, Woody Austin and Jonathan Byrd, all of whom are 3 under so far in the second round. -- Brian Wacker
