Matteson continues to make birdies

Who says it’s hard to follow up a really low round with another? Troy Matteson, who opened with a 61 on Thursday to take a three-stroke lead over Ricky Barnes, has picked up where he left off during the second round of the John Deere Classic.

Matteson birdied his first two holes at TPC Deere Run to extend his lead and has added two more birdies on the back nine to move to 14 under through 14 holes. He has yet to make a bogey in 32 holes to far this week.

J.J. Henry is Matteson's closest pursuer right now at 10 under through 28 holes. He started on the back nine and made the turn in 31, then birdied No. 1 to move to 6 under for the day.

Those two are the only players in double figures right now. Three-time defending champion Steve Stricker, who opened with a 65, is 2 under through 13 holes in the second round and tied at 8 under for the tournament.
