Cody Proveaux and Jordan Spieth have separated themselves from the pack at the HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods. Though they share identical 36-hole scores of 8-under-par, they have certainly employed their own, contrasting styles.
After his second-round 66, Spieth said that he was happy to feel the wind pick up.
“I think the course played quite a bit harder today. I’m used to the wind, I’m glad the wind picked up, and the greens are firming up,” said the Texas native. “It actually makes the course play a little shorter because you don’t have to fly it all the way to the hole.”
On the other hand, Proveaux thrived during Saturday’s first round when the docile playing conditions were more forgiving of his high ball flight.
“It was a lot harder today because I hit my high ball flight and the wind threw that down a lot. I had to take two, three extra clubs every hole just because of that wind,” said the South Carolina native. “I’m from the south and it doesn’t blow that much in South Carolina, so it’s going to be a big change but I’m going to work on it on the range.”
Monday’s forecast calls for 11 mph winds in The Woodlands, Texas. Does this play into anyone’s advantage? Follow FootJoy Live Scoring to find out!
