Ogilvy’s par good score on this day

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM Site Producer

Given the windy conditions at TPC San Antonio, where it’s blowing upwards of 30 mph, it’s no wonder Aussie Geoff Ogilvy is near the top of the leaderboard heading to the weekend after an even-par 72 Friday.

That’s not to say Ogilvy necessarily enjoyed playing in those conditions. He was just happy to get off the course with a decent score.

“I definitely could have had quite a lot worse,” said Ogilvy, who is coming off a tie for fourth at the Masters. “The score is good if you hit really, really good shots, but as soon as you miss one there's a potential disaster on every hole so I'm pretty happy with that score.

“It was blowing when it was dark this morning. It's more like windy Texas days. Happy to get out of it with no damage done and still looking forward to the weekend.”

Because the wind is blowing so much, officials moved a lot of tees up.

Not that it will impact scores too much.

”Today par is a great score,” Ogilvy said. “I think anyone shoots par is not going to be treading water, probably going to be moving forward today.”
