Par at The Olympic Club is as good as hitting a birdie on other courses, and Fort Worth resident and LSU alum John Peterson is proof.
Peterson shot even par for his second round and currently sits tied for eighth at +1 overall at the 2012 U.S. Open. He bogeyed the opening hole, as well as the fifth, but hit two birdies on the back nine to reach even par. Perhaps as impressive as anything was that he shot par on 14 holes. Given the difficulty of the course, par will keep you in the hunt.
Michael Thompson entered the day with a three-shot lead, but bogeyed the 11th and double-bogeyed the 12th to drop into a three-way tie at -1 with Jim Furyk and David Toms. Tiger Woods has just moved into first at -2.
Colleyville resident and Oklahoma State alum Hunter Mahan shot +1 for his second round and is tied for 23rd at +3. Fort Worth native and Oklahoma alum Martin Flores has shot +2 through four holes and also is at +3.
