The second round of the 2012 John Deere Classic will continue today. The first-round leader Troy Matteson, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, has continued his strong play on Friday by going to 2-under on his round through four holes. Matteson now has a five-shot lead over the field at 12-under par. Matteson put himself atop the leaderboard during Thursday's first round thanks to a stellar 10-under-par 61 on a day when many golfers scored in the low red numbers. He appears to continue that trend today in Silvas, Ill., due to the ideal scoring conditions with the support of a morning tee-time.
Three-time defending champion Steve Stricker, chasing a fourth straight victory in the Deere, is even-par for his second round as of the time of this update and currently in a tie for fourth position at 6-under par. Hunter Haas and Ricky Barnes are currently at 7-under par and tied for second place behind Matteson.
Barnes, out in the second group of the day, birdied all three par-5s and two of the four par-3s to pace the morning half of the field.
Robert Garrigus, among a group tied for third at 6-under 65, eagled the par-5 17th by hooking a 270-yard second shot around a tree to set up a 30-foot eagle putt.
Zach Johnson, the highest-ranked player in the tournament at sixth in the PGA Tour point standings, shot 3-under 68 thanks to a 4-under 31 on his last nine holes.
