PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Not surprisingly, conditions haven’t been quite as favorable for the afternoon wave at TPC Sawgrass. Case in point: Overnight leader Nick Watney hasn’t been able to catch David Toms yet.
Toms, who sits atop the leaderboard after a 4-under 68 in the morning, is one shot clear of Watney, who is 1 under through 13 holes. Lucas Glover is right there, too, playing his first 13 in 2 under to sit at 9 under for the week.
Unlike the opening round, when Watney made nine birdies and an eagle on his way to a 64, he’s made just three birdies so far in the second round. He’s also taken nearly as many putts -- 24 -- as he did all of Thursday -- 25.
The best round of the afternoon groups? That belongs to Greg Chalmers, who is 7 under through 17 holes with birdies on four of his last five holes.
