36-hole leader James Hahn sat down in the man-of-the-hour chair in the interview room at the Phoenix Open Friday evening and quipped, “You know I’m not Danny Lee…right?” Hey, totally fair comment from him — I mean, they do kind of look alike! Maybe? They’re both Asian? But I digress. I’m late for dinner and there are probably about three people who are going to read this (Hi, Dad!), so I’m going to try and make this as speedy as possible. Fingers crossed!

Hahn, who essentially lives down the street from TPC Scottsdale at Greyhawk, fired a six-under 65 in the second round for a two-day total of 10-under to take a one-shot lead over Rickie Fowler and his twin Danny Lee. The 34-year-old American, who secured his maiden victory on the PGA Tour last year at Riviera, is a member here and played and practiced at the facility until recently. He feels so comfortable at TPC Scottsdale that he didn’t even play a single hole in practice this week.

Ian Poulter pulled somewhat of a risky move in front of the rowdy fans on the par-3 16th during the second round of the Phoenix Open. Well, he actually might have been trying to show off, but it unfortunately back-fired on him.

Poulter knocked his tee shot to about eight feet. He, then, put his left hand in his pocket and kept the right hand on the putter grip and rolled the putt just like that. Yes, one-handed! He missed. You can only imagine the crowd’s reaction.

When I showed up at TPC Scottsdale on Tuesday, I was greeted by my pal from the Thunderbirds (the secret society charity group that hosts the Phoenix Open) in a golf cart with another T-bird (door-to-door service! — like I’ve said, they don’t mess around). I barely had time to drop off my computer and check in the media center before I was whisked away for a tour of the relocated Greenskeeper, one of the rowdiest and drunkest party areas — you pay $3,100 for four badges to the Greenskeeper tent, where it’s open bar and complimentary food — at the “Greatest Show on Grass,” aka, the wildest lawn party masquerading as a pro golf tournament.
