Watney quietly moving up the ranks

There has been a Nick Watney sighting in Las Vegas. The highest-rated player in this week’s field (No. 3 on the money list) has been as under-the-radar as possible during the first two rounds in Las Vegas. His first-round 65 left him two shots out of the lead Thursday and, after starting 1-over through six holes, Watney has turned things around with tap-in birdies on the drivable par-4 14th and the par-5 15th to reach 3 under on his round. Watney, Carl Pettersson and Boo Weekley are the top three on the course, all tied at 9 under, three shots off the pace. Six others on the course are at 8 under with opportunities to gain ground before the weekend in Vegas.
