LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The hot hand in the afternoon wave is an unlikely one – Jeff Maggert.
The 47-year-old has made just five cuts in 17 starts this year on TOUR, most recently in early May at the Zurich Classic. But you wouldn’t know it from his play Friday on the Magnolia Course, where he’s 5 under through 10 holes (he started on No. 10) and 8 under for the tournament.
Justin Leonard and Bio Kim continue to lead at 12 under after shooting 63 and 65 in the morning and are the only players at double-digits under par.
In the afternoon’s marquee matchup, Webb Simpson is turning the tables a bit on Luke Donald. Donald, hoping to overtake Simpson atop the money list, played better by two shots Thursday but is 1 over on his second round with all pars and one bogey through eight holes. Simpson is 2 under for his round and has overtaken Donald on the leaderboard.
