The Players Champioship 2012, Leaderboard Update: Zach Johnson Fires 6-Under 66, Vaults Ahead At -8

The second round of the 2012 Players Championship has had some serious low scoring in the morning in the first two rounds this week as former Masters champ Zach Johnson fired a 6-under 66 to vault atop the leaderboard at 8-under for the week.

Johnson used eight birdies on the day, including five on the back nine, along with a pair of bogeys to claim the top spot heading into the weekend. He currently sits one shot clear of the field as Kevin Na and Harris English finished at 7-under for the week, followed by seven others at 6-under.

Phil Mickelson shot a second round 71 to move to 2-under for the tournament, while first round leader Ian Poulter had a double bogey on his first hole to drop back out of the lead, now sitting at 5-under through two holes.

Tiger Woods recently teed off, those is on the wrong side of the projected cut line of even par at 2-over after three holes. Woods has never missed the cut in consecutive starts in his professional career, which he is in danger of doing today.
