CROMWELL, Conn. -- The second round is in full swing -- though the “afternoon” wave won’t tee off for another 90 minutes -- and the leaderboard is crowded with three players -- Webb Simpson, Vaughn Taylor and Brandt Jobe -- tied for the lead at 7 under.
Jobe has very quietly had a nice season with three top-10s, including a runner-up finish at the Memorial tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance two weeks ago.
Simpson’s season has been even better. He has four top-10s, including a pair of runner-up finishes in Tampa and New Orleans, where he lost in a playoff.
Taylor? He’s struggled with four missed cuts in his last five starts. He has just two top-25s all season.,
