Maruyama on top; afternoon wave out

It’s been a few years since Shigeki Maruyama has been a regular on the PGA TOUR, much less been atop a leaderboard. That’s where he is now, though, after a second straight 65 has him at 10 under.

The last four years have been a steady decline for Maruyama, who made just nine combined starts the last two seasons. The last time he was this close to the lead? In 2007, when he tied for second at the Ginn sur Mer Classic.

One big reason Maruyama is halfway to his first victory since 2003: Putting. Maruyama is third in the field in putts per green in regulation at 1.520 through two rounds. And that’s why he leads the field with 16 birdies.

Meanwhile, overnight leader Stuart Appleby is on the course and is 1 under through his first four holes today. That has him in a tie for fourth and three off Maruyama’s lead.
