Northern Trust Open: Second round preview


Dustin Johnson, Blake Adams, Sang-Moon Bae, and Charlie Beljan are tied for the lead at five-under par.  Adams is one-under through seven holes, Bae is one-under through four holes, and Beljan is one-under through two holes of his second round.  Johnson is set to tee off at 12:12 pm PT.

After round one, eleven players were tied for second place at four-under par.  Morgan Hoffman, Francesco Molinari, and Matt Jones are all looking for their first win on the PGA Tour.  Scott Stallings is looking for his second victory of the season, and fourth win of his career.  Jimmy Walker shot four-under as well, but is one-over through four holes of his second round.  Walker is attempting to wrap up POY as he goes for his fourth victory of the season.

Rickie Fowler has not won since his breakthrough victory at the Wells Fargo Championship in 2012.  He shot three-under in his first round, but has stumbled out the gate with two bogies to begin his second round.

Graham DeLaet, Hunter Mahan, Justin Rose, Harris English, and Webb Simpson all shot one-under yesterday.  Look for them to make a move up the leaderboard today.

The forecast is 70s and sunny.  Ideal scoring conditions once again at Riviera.
