There was absolutely no let-up in the difficult playing conditions Friday in Wales.
The world’s best senior stars were battered and blow for the second straight day at the Royal Porthcawl Golf Club. How difficult was it? Would you believe 13-over par made the 36-hole cut?
It’s a fact. A score of 155 for 36-hole got you into the weekend.
Nick Faldo even made it after shooting 79-76.
He’s only a dozen shots behind the leaders because NO ONE is under par, NO ONE is even par for two rounds.
Former Open champion Tom Lehman and senior superman Bernhard Langer head the list of five players at one-over par.
Former Golf Channel guy Steve Flesch is in there with them along with Billy Mayfair and day one leader Mauricio Molina.
Some of the par fours were unreachable in two and it was difficult to make any shot hold its line.
Putting was a test with gusts blowing up to 40 miles per hour off the Bristol Channel.
