The second round of the 2012 John Deere Classic is underway, and first-round leader Troy Matteson 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 be continuing that trend today in Silvas, Ill., thanks to perfect scoring conditions aided by a morning tee-time.
Three-time defending champion Steve Stricker 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.
