Conditions still tough in Round 2

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - The winds have quieted a touch during the second round of The Honda Classic, but conditions remain difficult.

The stroke average halfway through the morning wave of 73.1 is almost a stroke less than it was during the first round (73.8).  The projected cut is 7 over, which would match the highest cut in The Honda’s 39-year history. The highest cut at a non-major in PGA TOUR history is 13 over at the Memorial tournament presented by Morgan Stanley in 1990 and 1976.

Matt Kuchar, who won the 2002 Honda Classic, is 2 under through nine holes to move into a tie for the lead with Spencer Levin at 3 under. Kuchar played the Bear Trap in 1 under.

Y.E. Yang, who won here in 2009, was 1 under early in his round to also move to 3 under, but he bogeyed the 13 th and double-bogeyed the 16 th to fall back to even par.

Nick Price, playing in his first PGA TOUR even in more than three years, is 3 over through 14 holes and is currently tied for 41st. -- Craig Dolch
