Gary Woodland Still Leads at Rainy Bellerive

Pittsburgh, PA: Coming into this week, the course was soft and the greens were slow.  After a rain shortened Round two, we will likely see more of the same on Saturday and Sunday.  Gary Woodland is leading the tournament at 10-under but it was  Brooks Koepka and Kevin Kisner that  were the stories of the day on Friday.   Koepka shot a 63 and missed a birdie putt on 18 which would have set a Major Tournament record while Kevin Kisner pulled into second place with a 64 of his own.

Kevin Kisner sits at 9-under this week and was the co-leader last year after two rounds so this is familiar territory.  A win this week could put him position to  get an invite to play for the US in the Ryder Cup.  As for Kevin this season it has been feast or famine with four top tens and 8 missed cut.  Though one of his shining moments was the 2nd at the Open Championship just a couple weeks ago.

Brooks Koepka finished the day at 8-under.  He has a Major win this year and two for his career after winning the US Open in consecutive seasons.

Both Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler are both tied at 7-under for the tournament though Ricki is not finished with his 2nd round yet.  DJ was able to finish his round today.

Other players making moves today included Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth both at 3-under par.  Woods is not finished his round two quite yet so there is still a chance for him to make up more ground.

Zach Johnson began the day at 4-under and after an even par round of 70, he stay in neutral.   Phil Mickelson is 3+over and the projected cut sits at or near even.   He is through 8 holes with a chance to make the cut tomorrow.

Here is the remainder of the Leaderboard.
