2020 WGC-St. Jude Invitational Leaderboard, Takeaway: Ricky Fowler in contention after Round 2


What was previously seen as a limitation of Brooks Koepka turned into a generous leaderboard at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational on Friday morning. Koepka is still involved, but is now chasing rather than exiting the front.

Kopka is not alone among the chasers. He is joined by Ricky Fowler, Jason Day, Webb Simpson and Justin Thomas. They are all trying to knock down Brendan Todd, who is the only player double-figures under par so far this week at 11. Let’s take a look at their round and the rest of the board go into Round 3 on Saturday.

1. Brendan Todd (-11) – I am concerned about golfers who are not elite ball-strikers at the top of the leaderboard based on putting alone. Todd is hitting the ball well, but the lion’s share of his stroke is gained through 36 holes on the greens in the event. It is not durable in mediocre area, so it has very little this The grounds where the best players are on the planet are all lax.

2. Ricky Fowler (-9) – There are actually two clear days from Fowler, who has just two bogies in the first 36 holes and second in the area near the hole. I’m saying something about not thinking about the swing on Thursday, but thinking about trying to hit the shot. He has been working through a few swings, and seems to have really been a hit for them by now.

“[I] Really focused a bit more on stuff I could think of or simplified things as far as ideas go, “Fowler said this week.” What can I do on golf course ideas – working on the swing versus the boundary. How to separate it. … just try not to worry too much about the swing and go back to thinking about some basics and how the body is moving and the weight is moving to the right, and when the weight is getting back to the left , So just allow yourself to go play and make golf shots. “

You may not be present on the PGA Tour too long worrying about all those different nuances, and Fowler’s statistics and scores indicate that he is less concerned about those and what the cards actually say, Are more concerned about it.

T3. Ben, Ann, Cheese Reeve Brooks Kopka (-7) and 6. Sung Kang (-6) – Kopka put his 11th hole of the day at 3 feet three-friday and finished last on the field in the Friday fixture. Not good The better news is that it is the best he has hit it all year. He is in the green and first approach shots from the first tee. Despite 1 over 71, the swing again looked tremendous on Friday. If it’s possible i really am more Friday was encouraged after 71 as compared to Thursday’s 62 because I have now seen a multi-event trend of striking the ball really well. It should last all week.

T7. Sungje Im, Luis Oosthuizen, Webb Simpson, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Jason Day (-5) – The encouraging thing about Dey is that he is doing more from tee to green than his putter (who is often used to do so). The day, despite a back that looks like it can go at any time, has been really good in the last month quietly. She was my sleeper pick this week at 40-1. I’m not really that high on the quality of this board, but it at least looks like it can make it interesting in the last two days.

T 12. Kevin Na, Justin Thomas (-4) – I can say this week just because she was my pick, but Thomas’ statistical profile is perfect if you are looking for someone who is going to make a big weekend. Thomas is top five in green from the tee and below 10 in the insert. Potters will bounce back to see how it’s finished in the first two days, and he’ll probably fire one-two rounds in the mid-high-60s. Or at least what I am going to tell myself.
