Jesper Parnevik shot a 68 to go with his opening-round 66, but what he wanted to talk about was his fellow Swede, Annika Sorenstam.
This whole week is about Annika, he said. Its a very historic week. Being a Swede, Im very proud of her, very impressed with the way shes handled herself. Shes played amazing, Id have to say. I guess we have the Shark, the Tiger and now we have Superwoman.
Chad Campbell is back home in Fort Worth and doing quite well with a score of 6-under 134.
Its a lot of fun, he said. Its a little bit hectic sometimes, but its a lot of fun playing in front of family and friends. Maybe a little bit added pressure on myself because I want to play good. They dont get to see me play all the time, so its nice to be able to come out and play well for them.
