Round 2 of the Humana Challenge has commenced and Bunkers Paradise has the highlights you’ve been waiting for. After shooting two back to back rounds of 63, Patrick Reed has displayed the skill that a professional golfer must hone to truly succeed on tour. Reed sits at 18-under par after 2 rounds of play.
To put it into perspective, most recreational golfers struggle to break 90 throughout life when they dream of shooting in the 70’s, but to shoot back to back 63’s is just something that requires a whole other level of dedication and time. Reed has absolutely taken control of the field with 17 Birdies 1 Eagle and only 1 Bogey. It’s truly incredible to see the skill that some tour professionals possess. Reeds wife Justine, who regularly caddies for him, is taking a break as she is pregnant with their first child. Justine’s brother Kessler Karain is subbing for her until she is fully recovered after she delivers her baby.
Brendon Todd was just 2 strokes behind Reed after Round 2 had finished. Todd was the only player without a bogey after both rounds. Todd commented on his play with, “Obviously, both days were really solid,” Todd said. “Bogey-free was huge. … Before I knew it, I was at 7- or 8-under with a few to play, feeling like I should birdie every hole. … The weather’s been so good, I’m not surprised to see what Patrick did.” -PGATour.com
Ryan Palmer sits in 3rd place after shooting a 65 with a short eagle putt on hole 5. Palmer sits at 15-under par. Charley Hoffman shot a 66 to sit a total of 14-under par placing him in 4th place. Hoffman had a streak going as he birdied 5 of the front 9 holes. The shot of the day came from Keegan Bradley as he aced the 177 yard par 3, on hole 3. Bradley shot a 69, 66 to put him to a total of 9-under par for the tournament.
