Stricker Shoots 63 Again Leads By One 2009: Fort Worth

Stricker Shoots 63 Again Leads by One

FORT WORTH, Texas From its Ben Hogan trophy room to its status as the longest-running event at its original site, the Colonial Country
Club is among the most venerable stops on the PGA Tour. This week, the ol’ course is playing like a pitch-and-putt. Tim Clark, Vijah Singh and Shaun O’Hair shot 64s on Friday and were lined up right behind Stricker: Clark was one shot back, Singh one more and O’Hair yet another. Jason Day (65) was 10 under, Woody Austin (68) was another stroke back, and Ryan Palmer (63) was 8 under. “The weather, for two days in a row – well, all week since we’ve been here – has been unbelievable,” Stricker said. “Wind is what this course needs to get difficult, but we haven’t seen it yet. … I kind of like what’s going on right now.” Clark’s two-round total of 127 matched the previous best for back-to-back rounds set by Justin Leonard in ’03. Singh’s two-round total of 128 matched the previous midway mark set by Kenny Perry in 2005. And they’re only good for footnotes because of Stricker’s 126. “I’d rather have the trophy,” Stricker said. “We’re only halfway through. I’d like to keep making putts. That solves a lot of problems.”
