SAN MARTIN, Calif. -- While putting has been a problem for Tiger Woods, it hasn’t been one for Paul Casey.
Through 15 holes here in the second round, Casey has just 20 putts -- even more impressive when you take into consideration that he’s hit 12 of 15 greens in regulation. He’s also made a couple of lengthy ones, including a 37-footer on No. 16 and a 24-footer on the 17th, on his way to seven birdies and just one bogey.
Casey was especially hot with the flat stick on the back nine -- his first nine holes -- with seven one-putts. He’s cooled a bit since then, but he’s atop the leaderboard at 7 under with three holes left in his round.
