HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- Don’t forget about me, first-round Heritage leader Garrett Willis said with his actions on Friday.

Willis followed his first-round 64 with a 69 on Friday and is one stroke behind Luke Donald going into the weekend at Harbour Town.  Willis had four birdies and two bogeys for the day – he made bogey at No. 1 and No. 10. He got some revenge at No. 9, making a 10-foot putt for birdie on a hole that he bogeyed the first day.

Willis was more effective off the tee, hitting 11 of 14 fairways, but hit just 12 greens in regulation, three fewer than in the first round. He continues to putt well and has yet to miss a putt inside of 10 feet.

Willis is now 4-for-4 when it comes to making the cut at The Heritage. A solid weekend will enable him to beat his best finish at the tournament, when he tied for 38th in 2003.
