JP Hayes 2 Shots Back at Verizon Heritage
Friday, April 16: El Paso's J.P. Hayes is in a tie for 9th place after a 3-under 68 at the Verizon Heritage Golf Tournament in Hilton Head, SC. Hayes moved up from 28th to a tie for 9th. Hayes is 43rd on the PGA Tour Money List. A grueling Masters finally caught up to K.J. Choi at the Verizon Heritage, and Jim Furyk, Charles Howell III and Greg Owen took advantage to share the lead after Friday's second round. All three were tied at 7-under 135, a stroke ahead of a group that included two-time Verizon champ Boo Weekley and Stuart Appleby. Choi, who played alongside Tiger Woods all four rounds at Augusta National, opened with a 64 on Thursday. However, he couldn't maintain that pace and fell three shots off the lead after a 74 at Harbour Town Golf Links.
