Glover holds lead after second round

Associated Press  |  Last updated April 26, 2013
Lucas Glover made an 18-foot birdie putt on his final hole Friday to take a one-stroke lead over Boo Weekley after the second round of the Zurich Classic. Glover, the 2009 U.S. Open winner, shot a 5-under 67 to reach 12 under at TPC Louisiana. ''I've been hitting it good for a couple months and finally started making some putts,'' Glover said. ''I mean I was hitting it as good as I can hit it. But at the same time, if you putt poorly. ...'' Weekley had a 68. He holed out with a wedge from 105 yards for an eagle on the par-4 10th, his first hole of the round. ''I couldn't tell it went in because it's got a little bit of an upper lip in the front of it,'' Weekley said. ''I saw it bounce, and then I didn't see it no more. Then the people in the background started hollering and whooping, I was like, `Wow, that really went in.' I didn't believe it.'' D.A. Points was 10 under after a 68. Morgan Hoffmann was three strokes back at 9 under after a 69, and Ernie Els had a 69 to reach 8 under. Els lost a playoff to Jason Dufner last year in the event. ''I like the course.'' Els said. ''I obviously played well here last year and I'm just trying to set that same game plan and really wait for the course to come to me.'' Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old Chinese amateur playing on a sponsor exemption, followed his opening 72 with a 69 finish at 3 under to make the cut. He tied for 58th two weeks ago in the Masters after becoming the youngest player to make the cut at Augusta National, and said Thursday that he will play in a U.S. Open qualifier in two weeks in Dallas. ''I think I played a very good round today,'' Guan said. ''I made a lot of birdies and a couple of good up and downs.'' Bubba Watson, the 2011 winner, rebounded from an opening 73 with a 65 to reach 6 under. ''It was good,'' Watson said. ''Yesterday, I played really scared. I'm trying to play good. When you do that you don't hit quality shots and you just struggle.'' Dufner was 3 under after a 71. NOTES: Keegan Bradley missed the cut, shooting 69-74. .... Watson appeared upset after a fan took a photo apparently as he hit his second shot on the par-4 12th. Watson walked several yards back down the fairway to point out the person to security personnel.
