PGA Tour: Puerto Rico Open round two recap

James Driscoll shot a flawless nine-under 63 to take the lead at the midway point of the Puerto Rico Open.  Driscoll is at 12-under, one stroke ahead of PGA Tour rookie Chesson Hadley.

Veterans and newcomers are contending for a much needed victory in Puerto Rico.

Driscoll is a veteran on the PGA Tour who usually plays well enough to secure his card, but has never broken through to the winner’s circle.  If he gets a W this week, the flood gates may open.

Hadley is having a decent rookie campaign.  He has two top-10 finishes, but has also missed six cuts in 11 events.  Hadley won twice on the Tour last year, and a W in Puerto Rico would be a dream start to his career on the PGA Tour.

Eric Axley is in third place at 10-under.  Axley hasn’t been a full member on the PGA Tour since 2009, so he is looking forward to finding his golf game, and making another go on the PGA Tour.

Five-time winner Jonathan Byrd and former U.S. Amateur Champion Danny Lee are three back at nine-under par.  PGA Tour rookie Wes Roach and second year player Ben Martin are also at nine-under.

There is a logjam of veterans at eight-under: Greg Owen, David Toms, Jerry Kelly, Jason Gore, Ricky Barnes, and George McNeil.  Bud Cauley and Rafael Cabrera Bello are also at eight-under.
