Pettersson Holds Top Spot Scott Makes Move

RSS

DUBLIN, Ohio -- Carl Pettersson remained in the lead Saturday as the second round was finally completed at The Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club.
 
The second round was completed Saturday morning as heavy rain caused a long delay on Friday. The plan is to send the players out for the third round at 1:30 p.m. (ET) in threesomes off both the first and 10th tees.
 
Adam Scott made the biggest move on Saturday. He fired a 6-under 66 in round two and is tied for second place with reigning PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year Sean O'Hair, who carded a second-round, two-under 70. The pair is knotted at seven-under-par 137.
 
Steve Flesch, the first-round leader, only managed an even-par 72 in the second round. He is tied for fourth place with Zach Johnson (68), Tim Clark (69), Brandt Jobe (68) and Byron Nelson winner Brett Wetterich (69). The group finished 36 holes at minus-6.
 
Reigning Masters champion Phil Mickelson polished off a 2-under 70 on Saturday. He is tied for ninth place with J.J. Henry (69) and last week's BMW Championship winner on the European Tour, David Howell (70). This trio is in at 5-under-par 139.
 
Defending champion Bart Bryant shot a second-round, 3-over 75 and is part of a group tied for 47th place at plus-1.
 
The 36-hole cut fell at 4-over-par 148 and former Masters champion Fred Couples was the most notable player to miss the mark. Couples, who won here in 1998 and finished second the last two years, struggled to an 8-over 80 in the second round and completed 36 holes at 5-over-par 149.
