J.J. Henry didn’t even have to hit a shot to reclaim the lead early Friday. He can thank Stewart Cink for that.
Cink, who had a share of the overnight lead with a 67 Thursday, has plummeted down the leaderboard after playing his first 12 holes here in Round 2 in 5 over.
Things started well enough for Cink, who hasn’t won since the 2009 British Open, with four pars and a birdie over his first five holes at TPC San Antonio. Since then, it’s been a mess with three bogeys and a triple bogey over his last eight holes.
The triple bogey for Cink came on No. 9 -- the same hole where Kevin Na infamously made a 16 on Thursday -- where Cink hit it left off the tee, had to punch out and then came up short of the green on his approach. He then pitched onto the fringe but left himself some 50 feet and took three more strokes to get home, missing his attempt at double from just inside 10 feet.
Adam Scott, who started the day just one back, has also fallen back. The Aussie has three bogeys and two birdies through his first 13 holes and he’s already taken 23 putts.
