Michael Kim caught fire this afternoon. The 25-year-old is on top of the leader board with -16 under par with several birdies and no bogeys.
Steve Wheatcroft started his round strong, but he cooled off later as the heat got to him. He had 3 bogeys on his last 9, ending the round with -12 under.
“It’s just so humid and so hot,” Wheatcroft said. “You couldn’t stay hydrated no matter what you did.
David Hearn moved up the leader board this morning. He lost in a 3-way playoff with Jordan Spieth in 2013. PGA officials questioned his new putting style, but he was cleared, and it’s been good for him so far. He ended the day -12 under par.
