So much for a lack of low scores in the afternoon, at least by a few players anyway.
Jason Day has moved to the top of the leaderboard at 6 under thanks to a pair of birdies (and no bogeys) through his first 10 holes.
Meanwhile, Charley Hoffman is now just one shot back after playing his first eight holes in 4 under with birdies on Nos 11, 13, 14 and 16. Those birdies come a lot easier when you rank in the top 5 in the field in driving accuracy, greens in regulation and putts per round.
Nicholas Thompson, though, has the best round going at 5 under through 15 holes. So far, Thompson has needed just 18 putts. He’s 3 under for the week. -- Brian Wacker
