Henley’s 71 in the second round included six birdies and five bogeys. It moved him to 8-under 136, all alone in third place, four shots off the lead.
“It was a tough test, and I felt like I hung in there well,” said Henley, who arrived at The Players coming off back-to-back missed cuts. “I’m excited about the weekend. I’m going to give it everything I got, and I’m going to go after it. I’m going to try to win.”
