This week: Humana Challenge, Thursday through Sunday, PGA West Resort (Palmer, Nicklaus, La Quinta CC), La Quinta, Calif.
Gonzales’ second-round score: Even-par 72 at La Quinta.
Kelly’s second-round score: 1-over 73 at La Quinta.
Stanley’s second-round score: 3-over 75 at Palmer.
Position: Stanley (2-under 142) is tied for 130th, Gonzales (1-over 145) is tied for 145th and Kelly (2-over 146) is tied for 149th – all trailing co-leaders Roberto Castro and James Hahn (14-under 130).
Recap: A perfect day for scoring – there were 19 rounds of 65 or better – and none of the locals could take of advantage and post a low score. Consequently, all of them are in serious danger of missing the cut (which is projected to be around 10-under). Stanley was 2-under on his round through eight holes when he ran into trouble at No. 9, hitting his drive into the left-side lake, and ending up with double bogey. That started his 5-over run the rest of the way. … Gonzales was all over the map, especially on the par-5 holes where he bogeyed two of them, birdied another – and made eagle at No. 11. … Kelly just isn’t getting anything going in the hometown event, making three bogeys and two birdies Friday.
Tee times Saturday: Kelly at 9:20 a.m. PDT at Nicklaus, Stanley at 9:50 a.m. PDT at La Quinta and Gonzales at 10 a.m. PDT at Nicklaus. All go off the 10th tee.
