The PGA Tour event on Waialae Stadium, par70 for the second consecutive day in fine weather, helped golfers improve their position in the title competition.
The second round on January 15 took place in the blue sky, the wind was mild, the waves were rolling.
“This is an ideal day to hit in Waialae because there is hardly any wind, the air is a bit humid. And under such conditions, we have to make use of it. Because we just need to hit normally without having to calculate the harm. of the wind to the ball, “said player Stewart Cink Golf Channel.
The whole round, golfer born in 1973 scored seven birdies and no bogey. As a result, he increased 38 places on the overall scoreboard. Cink won the major The Open Championship 2009 in seven PGA Tour titles.

Simpson himself is also afraid of being good. On the first day, he bogey at hole 2 par4. The next day, the score of hole 2 was still the same as the rounding score of only -1 when the hole 3 ended.
“Whenever the wind is quiet, I think I have to hit 7, 8, 9 strokes. After 12 holes, I only negative 1 so I feel pressure. But the ending is really satisfied,” Simpson said personally. He scored a birdie 7.6 meters away in hole 4, then scored the same in all last three holes. In both rounds, Simpson scored 65 strokes.
