Copperhead: Downright soft!

Is this the same course that Sean O'Hair won with a 4-under total over four rounds in 2008? Due to no wind and perfect weather conditions, players are finding the Copperhead Course downright scoreable, if that's a word (probably not).

Midway through the second round, the field is averaging 70.566 on the par-71 layout. The field averaged 70.819 in Round 1, and the scores were actually dropping in the afternoon.

The tournament record of 18-under 266, set by Vijay Singh during his epochal 2004 season, still appears to be safe ... unless Round 1 leader Paul Casey goes ultra-low again. Given the perfect conditions, it's a real possibility.
