Nicklaus ready to start tinkering with hole No. 18
Question of the Day
He banged a 320-yard drive through the fairway and into the left rough. From there he had to muscle an iron shot out of heavy rough. He did fine.
Duke’s shot landed pin high and rolled to the back of the canted green before reversing direction, picking up speed, hitting the pin and falling into the cup.
The eagle allowed him to stay right on the cut line. He was even through 12 holes on the day when play was suspended and stood at 3 over.
CALLING SECURITY: Fred Couples was just about to hit his drive on the second tee during Friday’s second round when a cell phone went off in the gallery.
The phone rang again. Security officials scrambled around, looking for the offending party.
Then a woman’s automated voice could be heard saying, “Please leave a message.”
Finally, a marshal turned to one of the volunteers in sky-blue shirts who are charged with preventing spectators from taking pictures or calls with their cell phones.
“Is that one of yours?” the marshal said.
The cell-phone volunteer sheepishly unzipped a fanny pack and pulled out the phone, which had been confiscated from a fan.
A nearby spectator laughed and said, “Throw him out!”
BLEAK BEGINNINGS: Brandt Snedeker has gotten off to a rapid start on the PGA Tour this year, winning at Pebble Beach and finishing in a tie for second at Torrey Pines. He’s second on the money list behind Tiger Woods, with more than $3.3 million in earnings.
But the way he started his round on Friday won’t go into his book of memories.
Teeing off on hole No. 10, Snedeker was 1 over for his first four holes and then went triple bogey, bogey, double bogey to get to 7 over on his round through seven holes.
