Day two is wrapped up for this year’s “Super Bowl of Golf” and the man who started out this tournament red hot is still leading after finishing his round with a terrific run, sinking five birdies to really take charge. He’s a comfortable four shots ahead of second place Adam Scott who is -6 for the tournament. Jordan Speith surprised some folks with a charge placing him third on the leaderboard being five shots behind Stenson. Another surprise is seeing Dustin Johnson within the top 10 and for a control player course, East Lake wasn’t able to hold down arguably one of the best power hitters in golf history in DJ who finished -4 along with Billy Horschel and U.S. Open Champion and future hall of famer Justin Rose.
BMW Championship winner Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker who came into this event as favorites and are -3 for the tournament and still can get into contention if Stenson starts slowing down a bit. At this point though, the only person I really see staying into contention with Stenson is Adam Scott who, like I said before, can heat up at any moment. The only thing I would have to say is how clutch can he be?he would pretty much have to be matching Henrik shot for shot to catch up to him and take the lead. The biggest question is, how long can Henrik keep up this spectactular playing? Only time will tell. Here’s the full leaderboard
