In­side the num­bers

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - SPORTS -

As ex­pected, the cut line landed at mi­nus 2, with al­most half the field tee­ing it up for to­day’s third round. There were 77 rounds in the 60s the first day with that num­ber com­ing in at 76 af­ter Fri­day’s rel­a­tively calm round weather wise.

The scor­ing av­er­age was al­most the same as the first round at 69.224. It was 69.208 on Thurs­day. The eas­i­est hole for the sec­ond straight day was the par-5 ninth. That hole sur­ren­dered 21 ea­gles, 91 birdies, 26 pars and five bo­geys for a scor­ing av­er­age of 4.105. The rea­son for the odd num­ber is that Pa­trick Rodgers with­drew on Fri­day be­cause of the flu.

There were 18 ea­gles in the open­ing round. That num­ber rose to 24 as the par-5 18th came in as the sec­ond-eas­i­est hole. There are only two par-5s on the par-70 lay­out.
