Ernie on the move
Two-time U.S. Open champion Ernie Els is making a strong afternoon run. Els, who started has round on the back nine, was 2 under on his first nine and has picked up another stroke, leaving him at 3 under with five holes to play.
Geoff Ogilvy, the 2006 U.S. Open winner, is also at 3 under. Both players are currently 1 stroke behind journeyman Kevin Streelman, who is 4 under par with three holes left to play. Streelman had good success at Torrey Pines earlier this year, leading after the first round and playing in the final group on Saturday with Tiger Woods.
Another notable playing well this afternoon is Luke Donald who is at 2 under.
The afternoon winds that sometime hit the golf course at this time of day have not materialized, giving players a chance to score.
Among the faces in the crowd today were former Minnesota Vikings head coach Dennis Green and Newbury Park High girls' basketball and golf coach Norrie Parvin.
