Two opening birdies, six overall, in the second round of the Wells Fargo Championships has moved Phil Mickelson into the lead going into weekend (guess a revised phrankenwood is working for him).
It was actually Mickelson’s putting that’s hot, highlighted when he sank a 40-foot birdie putt at the turn to finish with a 5-under-par 67 for the round and 9-under-par overall.
Despite the terrible greens at Quail Hollow, Mickelson has been a putting machine. According to Golf.com, “Mickelson has taken only 50 putts in two rounds. And the most staggering statistic of all? He hasn’t missed from inside 10 feet.”
Scott Gardiner, Nick Watney and George McNeill share the second place lead with a 7-under-par overall score going into Saturday.
First round leader and former world number 1, Rory McIlory, has a relatively passive day making three birdies and two bogeys for a round 2 score of 1-under-par. He is currently three stroke behind Mickelson at T-5th with four other players (Lee Westwood, Rod Pampling, Jason Kokrak, Derek Ernest).
Mulligang.com pick, Webb Simpson, is currently even-steven overall going into the weekend, while Bubba Watson shot an atrocious 4-over-par on Friday to miss the cut, which was set at 2-over-par 146.
Come ‘on Watson… get your act together!
