3 Best Shots: Round 2, Farmers Insurance Open

Justin Rose maintained his one shot lead after Round 2 of the Farmers Insurance Open. Rose carded a 1-under 71, to move to 8-under for the tournament.

Adam Hadwin and Brandt Snedeker are both at 7-under, while Ollie Schniederjans, Keegan Bradley, Robert Streb, Brian Harman, Zac Blair, Kevin Streelman and Cheng Tsung Pan all find themselves 2 shots back at 6-under.

To conclude coverage of round two, here are the three best shots from Friday.

Will MacKenzie’s Perfect Approach

I think it is no question what the shot of the day was: MacKenzie’s perfect approach into the par-5 6th took one hop past the cup and then spun hard right into the hole.

Unfortunately, MacKenzie finished at 1-over and missed the cut line by one.

Brooks Koepka’s Chip-In Birdie

Despite missing the cut by one shot as well, Koepka also provided one of the day’s best shots. On a day where the wind was gusting and scores were around par, a lot of approach shots didn’t find the green.

Koepka’s approach into the par-4 10th went sailing and left him with this delicate chip that he buried into the cup.

Rose Birdies 18

It’s not what you’d call a great shot, PGA Tour-wise. But the downhill 10-footer on the final hole was clutch in two ways: First, it “finally” put Rose in the red for the round (-1), and, more importantly, it gave him the outright lead after 36 holes. For that it gets the nod. (Plus there weren’t a heck of a lot of great shots to choose from – as Torrey Pines played some great defense.)
