ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- Every group in the afternoon wave has been on the course for at least an hour. Early indications are that there won’t be many threats to Michael Thompson’s lead at 10 under. Webb Simpson, who started closest at 7 under, gave a shot away when he missed a 4-foot par-saver on No. 4. He got back to 7 under with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 7th. Joining him at 7 under is Billy Horschel, who is 1 under through his first three holes. Richard S. Johnson just made the turn at 1 under today, 6 under for the week, and is joined there by Ben Crane, Scott McCarron and Nick O’Hern who have played six, five and five holes respectively. The biggest mover of the early afternoon is Charles Howell III. The two-time PGA TOUR winner has four birdies and a bogey on his first four holes today at Sea Island and has moved to a tie for 15th on the leaderboard at 4 under. Our Featured group is seven holes into their second round. Brandt Snedeker, on the strength of back-to-back birdies at Nos. 5 and 6 is 2 under today, 1 under for the week, and leading the trio of St. Simons Island residents. Zach Johnson and Davis Love III are both 1 over for the week. Johnson gave his shot away on No. 4 while Love, who opened with a 69 Thursday, had two bogeys to start his round.
