Stricker Strikes in Hawaii January 08 2012

Steve Stricker shot a 10 under par 63 in the second round of the Hyundai Tournament at the Plantation course in Hawaii with an amazing putting display. "I felt like I was going to make every putt I looked at for a while," Stricker said. He now has a five shot lead over Webb Simpson at the halfway stage in Kapalua. Kevin Na eagled the 17th and 18th holes but is still six strokes behind Stricker. Na said "I think it'll be the best finish of my life," Jonathan Byrd, the first round leader had a disappointing second round shooting 71 to finish at -8, seven shots in arrears of Stricker at -15. Goofy Rory Sabbatini had a bizarre two shot penalty for arriving late at the first tee. It was bizarre was the practice ground is only 25 yards from the first tee, his caddy took the blame citing a slow watch on his wrist. Although now twelve shots back of the leader Rory was philosophical about the error, stating. "It's the first time ever for me on tour. I know it's the first time for Mick. I guess neither of us were really paying attention. Just one of those goofy moments."
