Putting sparks Glover, Donald

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- The PGA TOUR’s new stat, strokes gained-putting, has been in use a couple of weeks now and it’s at least a little telling looking at the leaderboard.

The three players leading in that category coming into today’s second round? Matteo Manassero, Lucas Glover and Luke Donald.

One of those players -- Glover -- is just a shot off the lead after a 65. Another -- Donald -- isn’t far behaind after a 69 either.

Manassero? He was the exception to the rule, shooting an even-par 72.
