Morgan Pressel’s 2nd round 65 low score for the ADT

It may have been the result of a change of putting methods. Going from a left hand low to a conventional putting grip. During yesterday’s round Morgan made eight birdies.

Hole 3, 482-yard par 5: birdie – chip from short of green to 3 feet
Hole 4, 364-yard par 4: birdie – 7-iron to two feet
Hole 6, 335-yard par 4: birdie – 50-degree wedge to 12 feet
Hole 10, 388-yard par 4: birdie – 6-iron to 12 feet
Hole 11, 158-yard par 3: birdie – 4-hybrid on the tee to 15 feet
Hole 12, 531-yard par 5: birdie – 6-iron to 15 feet, on the fringe
Hole 14, 374-yard par 4: birdie – 7-iron to two feet
Hole 15, 494-yard par 5: birdie – 60-degree wedge to 15 feet

Morgan’s only blemish was a bogey at the par 4 13th.

An excellent round, put good play with the woods and irons may be just as much responsible for the 65.

Morgan, who is from nearby Boca Raton, was asked if its comfortable being a hometown favorite or if it adds more pressure. She replied-

You know, it’s tough playing in front of your friends and your family. It’s fun, it’s great, I love doing it. But it’s also hard because they’re all cheering for you so hard and they want to see you do well.

Morgan had a big gallery yesterday and today’s is certain to be even be larger. She tees off with Mi Hyun in today’s final pairing at 11:30 a.m.

Remember all scores reset today. So in actuality with have a sixteen way tie for the lead.
