Second-year TOUR player Josh Teater already knows it -- to survive on the PGA TOUR, one must make his share of 15-footers. His round on Friday was a good example why.
Teater missed just one green in the second round ... and didn't make a single putt over 11 feet. He ended up with 35 putts en route to a very frustrating 72. His 65 on Thursday had put him among the leaders for the first time all year.
This was shaping up to be a big week for Teater, who hasn't finished better than a tie for 63rd this year. He'd had a solid rookie campaign in 2010 -- two top-fives -- but putting has held him back in 2011.
