The Spaniard was fifth last week in the Rio Olympics.The greens are brilliant, Cabrera Bello said.

Its hard to control. Im disappointed with the two bogeys. Overall, still some good position with the tournament. Need to get over that and play a good round tomorrow.Donald scrambled to savve par on 18 for a 64. Nike Blazer Shoes Online. I hit a poor tee shot left and had to chip out, the Englishman said.

The U.S. Olympian won the 2013 event for his first tour title.Were just plugging along, Reed said. I just need to tidy it up. Its close. I go through spurts like today, I went through spurts, nine holes, playing some really solid, pretty good golf and then I go to the back nine and just started getting a little loose. I need to get that better and just kind of figure out a way to tighten it up for all 18, not just nine.U.S. teammate Rickie Fowler was tied for 25th at 8 under after a 68. Lucas Glover followed his second-round 61 with a 73 to drop into a tie for 33rd at 7 under. ' ' '
