CROMWELL, Conn. -- Some players in the field had their opening round interrupted by Thursday’s weather and were forced to resume play today. Others, like Vaughn Taylor, never even teed off until Friday.
“Well, I’m rested up,” Taylor said after a first-round 65 Friday.
Taylor didn’t have much time to reminisce about it -- after finishing he went back out about 40 minutes later for his 1:05 p.m. tee time in the second round. Not that a quick turnaround is necessarily a bad thing when you’re playing well.
“You just kind of keep going and hopefully the momentum throughout the day,” he said.
Well, through his first eight holes in the second round Taylor has just one birdie and one bogey. Still, he’s near the lead, now held by Brandt Jobe at 7 under after first-round leader Jim Renner bogeyed his first hole to drop to 6 under.
