Justin Rose to the Occasion, Allenby Gets Hot

Justin Rose of Great Britain took the lead on Saturday, Day two of the Deutsche Bank Championship, by shooting a 69 in heavy wind. Rose's 69 would be good enough to elevate him from second place to a tie for the lead with Austrailian Robert Allenby. Allenby fired a 66 in poor conditions to move to six under par and in a tie for the lead. Rose, who is in 103rd on the Tour's money list, had some struggles with his swing, but came through by chipping in on two occasions, most notable a forty yard pitch which he hooked around a tree from deep rough for a birdie 2. Tiger Woods, the Friday leader, struggled on his front nine (TPC of Boston's Back Nine) shooting a two over par 37. Tiger would come back at one under par to shoot a one over 71, dropping to third place. Tiger is still in the hunt for his fifth consecutive victory in five starts at only two behind the leaders. Tiger's longest winning streak of his professional career came in his 2000 season where he won six straight events. Aaron Baddeley and Olin Browne, last year's champion, both are tied with Tiger at four under par. Other notable rounds include Tour rookie Bubba Watson's 67 to move to eleventh place and Carlos Franco's 68. Windy conditions should continue through Sunday and the Monday conclusion of the Deutsche Bank.
