Day 2 Complete at Wyndham Championship


Another day at the Wyndham Championship, a whole other set of story lines. Several golfers had great rounds today while the leaders from yesterday played closer to par and fell off the pace a little. Let’s look at Day 2’s story lines from the Wyndham Championship.

Heath Slocum and Scott Langley have taken the lead at -10

Heath Slocum has shot back to back 65s to take the lead going into the weekend. Slocum is trying to post a strong result to get into the FedEx Cup playoffs which start next week. That would be going against the tide of last year’s results where no player was able to use the Wyndham Championship to become eligible of the FedEx Cup.

Scott Langley has shot straight 65s as well and will be paired with Slocum tomorrow. Langley, a second year tour player, does not need to win in Greensboro to reach the playoffs as he is at 81 on the points list and the top 125 qualify. Langley is looking for his first tour win, and that will likely be his goal going into the weekend.

Webb Simpson shoots 69, now 3 back at -7

Our Webb Simpson to Ryder Cup watch continues as Webb just got under par for the day, and he will be looking for a fresh swing of momentum on Saturday. Simpson’s best chance to impress Tom Watson would be to win the Wyndham, since the field is missing some of golf’s marquee names.

Camillo Villegas, the round one leader, also shot a 69 and is now two back of the pace at -8.

    The Weather Was Nice But it’s Time to Go
    Many notable golfers failed to reach the cut line at -2 and will not be playing this weekend. That group includes John Daly, Tar Heel Davis Love III, Fred Couples, Mike Weir, Trevor Immelman, and Hideki Matsuyama.

    Sadly, Padraig Harrington also missed the cut, so it looks like the Paddy Wagon will have to pick up and go home early.
