Snedeker cards 67, leads Wyndham by 2

Brandt Snedeker didn’t have another 59 in him, but he still leads the Wyndham Championship after two rounds.

The 37-year-old Snedeker followed the 10th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history with a 3-under-par 67 and took a two-stroke lead over D.A. Points to the weekend at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.

“You hear people telling you every two seconds, ‘Mr. 59,’ or saying how cool it was to watch it,” said Snedeker, who captured the 2007 Wyndham for the first of his eight PGA Tour titles. “So, yes, totally on your mind. You can’t ignore it, you can’t try to forget about it. Hardest thing is trying to get back into a rhythm. … Now I’m better equipped for the next time I shoot 59 and play the next day.

“When I finally convinced myself to hit a few putts, they started going in. Over 72 holes, you’re going to have stretches where balls don’t go in the hole. You’ve got to be able to kind of overcome, be patient, wait for the long ones to fall, and luckily I made a couple coming down the stretch.”

Sneds was 1-over for the day through 10 holes, but made two birdies on the back nine and highlighted his round with a 31-foot eagle putt on the 15th hole en route to a 36-hole score of 14-under 216.

Points, 41, who has three victories on the PGA Tour but has not finished in the top 30 this season and has missed the cut 19 times in 24 starts, carded a second straight 64 that included a 39-foot hole eagle out from a bunker on No. 5, while C.T. Pan of Taiwan birdied three of the last four holes in another 64 and is three shots back in third.

Sergio Garcia of Spain, trying to earn enough points make the FedEx Cup Playoffs next week, sank a 14-foot eagle putt on the 15th hole and is five behind in a tie for fourth with Harris English (65), Peter Malnati (65), David Hearn (67) of Canada, Keith Mitchell (66), and Brett Stegmaier (67).

Doug Ghim carded a 64 and is six down in a tie for 10th with Trey Mullinax (65), Aaron Baddeley (67) of Australia, Jonathan Byrd (68), and Nick Taylor (67) of Canada.

Defending champion Henrik Stenson of Sweden shot 65 and is tied for 15th.
