Martin referred to the way he plays as boring; "I don't know what to say, it's just very, very solid. It gets boring, the words that I use, but I mean, there's not much to say. It's just good right now, the way I play golf." I don't agree with the use of the word boring, more like brilliant to me. He still thinks there is work to be done; "It's not a done deal, the last three, four holes, I got a little bit tired. I didn't swing as good as the first fourteen holes." Brendon Todd posted a bogey-free -3 under par 67 in the afternoon to move to -4 under par for the tournament, in second place but still six shots off the lead. He acknowledged how well Martin had played; "Obviously, if you asked any player at the beginning of the week if you were -4 under through two days, would you take it or would you be in the lead and everybody would say yes. Martin's played exceptionally well. I even watched a little bit of coverage this morning. He hit a shot on 17, par 3, and it landed 10 feet left of the hole and he was like, shocked. He was like mad. I mean, those were my good shots this week, so he was obviously playing a really good level of golf." Kevin Na and Brandt Snedeker are tied in third place at -3 under par, Kevin asked if Martin had played a different course than everyone else; “I heard he played No. 3 course. Is that true? It’s unbelievable what he’s done. Is-4 or -5 under out there? Yes. 10-under out there? No, I don’t think so. I guess it was out there for him. It’s amazing.” All the players were saying great things about Martin's performance, not  one of them said that he could be caught, Justin Rose summed up the thoughts of everyone; “Take Martin out and there’s a great golf tournament going on at this stage.”  Will anyone get close to Martin, I don't think so, he is now on cruise control until the finish.
