My Favorites Going into the Weekend at TPC Southwind
Both Rory McIlroy and JB Holmes played excellent rounds yesterday. McIlroy was -5 for the day bringing bringing him from -2 to the lead at -7. Holmes played wonderfully with a total of 7 birdies which brought him from even par to -6. My two favorites going into the weekend are Davis Love III and Ken Duke. They are also two of my all time favorite golfers. Duke has had an excellent rookie season coming up from the Nationwide Tour where he clinched his PGA Tour card. Duke seems to be one of the nicest guys on tour and that is why I root for him. Davis Love III is a veteran golfer, yet hasn't played well this year. The Ryder Cup champion only made half of his cuts, and is pretty far down on the FedEx Cup points list. Both players have stated that the course has been playing tough, so 4 under for their total score puts them in great position for the weekend. As long as they both stay in the fairways and play consistent golf like they have done, Duke and Love have a promising chance at winning the FedEx St. Jude Classic.
