Waste Management Phoenix Open: Second Round Open Thread
By Conor Nagle under PGA Tour

The soundstage: a panoramic view of the 16th.

Buoyed by my complimentary words last week*, Spencer Levin is charging away from the pack during the second round of the Legitimate Businessmen Phoenix Open.

At 11-under-par for the tournament, he’s currently four shots clear of Bubba Watson, the terminally untroubled Jason Dufner and Bo Van Pelt.

Let’s hope, for the sake of young Levin’s self-esteem, that the fragile truce between the warring elements of his subconscious holds up until the close of play.

Points of Interest:

  • Is Big Phil playing himself into a little bit of early season form?
  • Trevor Immelman may not be back.
  • Is Bubba Watson the best American player on Tour?
  • Of the top-five in the current FedEx Cup standings – Johnson Wagner, Brandt Snedeker, Mark Wilson, Steve Stricker and Martin Laird – who will finish the season with the highest post-season ranking and/or PGA Tour earnings?
  • Stewart Cink shot 83 yesterday.

*Not a statement of fact.
