Second round leaderboard:
“It was really good…You always have fun when you’re playing well. I did a lot of the same things I did yesterday. The greens rolled a little bit better today. I just trusted the line that I was playing and made some putts today…It was a very good round. I played really solid all day and gave myself a lot of opportunities.”…said Dustin Johnson after his round
