South Korean Sang-Moon Bae (-6) propels the head of the Northern Trust Open with one card bogey-free second round. Third cut in as many appearances on the U.S. circuit for Victor Dubuisson.
Sang-Moon Bae, 27, has signed a 66 without any bogey to project lead the Northern Trust Open after thirty-six holes. Person other than the South Korean has finished the second day without committing any bogey! The three-time winner on the Japan Tour in 2011 proves that he particularly appreciates the route Riviera with a fifth card below 70 in six appearances.
“I love this course,” he just fell. Winner at least once a year on various Asian circuits between 2007 and 2011, Bae opened his account in the United States by winning the Byron Nelson Championship last season after a playoff lost face Luke Donald in particular in 2012 (Transitions Championship ). “It was a very good experience, Bae noted. I progressed a lot and I’ve learned to be patient.”
Baddeley Comfortable Riviera
Aaron Baddeley also certainly love this course on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Winner in 2011, the Australian waited for his return journey to be more aggressive with one of (14) and especially four birdies to finish. His 65 is the second performance of the day as only Jason Allred (9th) did better (64). The three-time winner on the PGA Tour expects a fourth title since the Northern Trust Open 2011. Robert Garrigus also dolphin Bae thanks to its firepower that allowed him to sign an eagle on the par 5 17th. His compatriot Charlie Beljan, defeated in the playoff last season by John Merrick (which does not make the cut this year) is one fourth, one stroke ahead of a group led by the leader after eighteen holes, Dustin Johnson.
Dubuisson Make The Cut
You must go to 23rd to find traces of the first European with former world number one Lee Westwood and Sweden’s David Lingmerth (-3). Justin Rose is still in a period setting for her big comeback as reflects this triple-bogey at hole number 12 which is a place to drop 55th in high demand since Webb Simpson, Ian Poulter, Vijay Singh, Retief Goosen, Geoff Ogilvy … Victor Dubuisson and accompanied him there. The French spent his third cut on the PGA Tour. Sage yesterday (15 pars), the young Cannes began his career go and return by his own birdies day course. Two bogeys (at 3 and 4) and a final error (bogey at 18) make the play above by Friday (1) for a total score in s. The cut has not smiled at the Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts (3) that prematurely ended his tournament, like Rickie Fowler, Thorbjorn Olesen, Joost Luiten, Padraig Harrington and Louis Oosthuizen in particular.
