At the end of day two its Phil Mickelson who leads this years Players Championship at Sawgrass by one shot. Only two British players have made the cut, with Ian Poulter (71) and Luke Donald (72) equal 38th with Padraig Harrington of Ireland (70) managed to stay in contention seven strokes off the lead.
Mickelson should have been further ahead of the pack at the end of day two however dropping three shots on the outward nine meant he fell behind Nathan Green before an eagle at the 16th pulled him back to a one shot lead. Another strange unfortunately for the world’s number one Tiger Woods with a one over par 73 leaving him some 9 shots off the lead leaving him just within the cut! Woods who has been on some fine form of late will be surprised with his current position but has struggled with the greens and is still to get to grips with the pace of these greens.
Other big name Brits to also fall short of the cut include Colin Montgomerie, with a 74 left him six over, and Paul Casey who had a six-over 78 to finish on 10 over.
