Farmers Insurance Open: Second Round Open Thread
By Conor Nagle under PGA Tour

Trev Immelman: luxury golf swing.

Open thread time! The Torrey Pines North Course put up about as much fight as the 2004 US Ryder Cup team yesterday (what, too soon?), yielding two 62s, a 63 and host of 64s.

Today, as those who dominated Thursday’s leaderboard transition to the trickier South Course, a degree of equilibrium should be restored.

Points of (dis)interest:

  • Phil Mickelson. Lefty teed off today in a tie for 147th place. Wherefore art his golf game?
  • Remember when Andres Romero was the most exciting player in world golf?
  • Say what you like, but Rod Pampling will forever be the man who led the 1999 Open Championship after the first round only to miss the cut the following day.
  • Who’ll have a more successful professional career: Walker Cup star Harris English or Danny Lee, once the youngest ever winner on the European Tour?
  • Who would win in an actual fight: Dustin Johnson or Pat Perez?
