Plenty of birdies are expected again today during the second round of the Allianz Championship. 46 players completed the first day under par. Dave Stockton finished the opening round with a four-under 67.
Stockton says it will take a low score to win the tournament, he says probably 15 under par to have a chance. Stockton says it’s fun to play this course after getting “our heads handed to us” the last couple of weeks.
Graham Marsh had an opening round that included a stretch of four straight birdies and is at five-under. Marsh says without wind, the course is much easier. Marsh says everyone can putt well, so that’ll lead to low scores.
Marsh says the only thing that could make the scores go higher is the weather. He says if there’s some wind and the greens dry out, then the greens will get really fast. Marsh says the only thing that would slow them down is a little rain. Scott Simpson shot a 29 on the front nine and has the first day lead at seven under.
