Barclays Golf Leaderboard 2013: Afternoon Starters Who Are in Position to Climb
The day is still young at Liberty National Golf Course in Jersey City, N.J., at the Barclays tournament, but players like Rickie Fowler have gotten off to fast starts. Through 11 holes, Fowler is six under for the day and the tournament.
If he keeps up this pace, he could be the man to beat by day’s end.
While Fowler enjoyed a hot start, there are still a good number of players with afternoon tee times who will be in position to make a run at the top of the leaderboard. Here’s a look at the leaderboard currently:
|1||Kevin Stadler||-7||-||4:17 p.m. ET|
|T2||Ryan Palmer||-6||-||3:33 p.m. ET|
|T2||Henrik Stenson||-6||-||3:55 p.m. ET|
|T2||Camilo Villegas||-6||-||4:28 p.m. ET|
|T7||Jason Day||-5||-||3:44 p.m. ET|
|T7||Matt Kuchar||-5||-||4:06 p.m. ET|

Tiger Woods, Four Under Par, Tee Time: 4:06 p.m. ET
Tiger shot a bogey-free 67 in the first round, and he had the same look he had at the Bridgestone in July. If he catches fire on Friday the way he did in the second round in Akron, Ohio, the rest of the field could be in peril.
Woods is coming off of another disappointing performance in a major. Perhaps that will bode well for him in Jersey City, as he should be playing with little to no pressure—at least by his unprecedented standards.
Kevin Stadler, Seven Under Par, Tee Time: 4:17 p.m. ET
Stadler is the current leader after he we was unconscious on Thursday—figuratively speaking, of course. The big man’s seven-under 64 gave him a nice lead, but players like Fowler have made things a bit more snug at the top of the leaderboard.
Still, who wouldn’t prefer to begin the day seven strokes under par, even if he winds up even with, or a shot or two behind, an early starter.
Henrik Stenson, Six Under Par, Tee Time: 3:55 p.m. ET
Who will finish higher on the leaderboard after second-round play?
Perhaps no player in the world has been as consistently good in 2013 with less to show for his efforts than Stenson. He’s been runner-up four times and finished in the top 10 a total of seven times this year. That includes a second-place finish at the Open Championship and a third-place mark at the PGA Championship.
Here, he is again sniffing around the top of the leaderboard. Is this the tournament he finally wins in 2013?
Stenson and five others were just one stroke behind Stadler when this article was published. If he’s that close by the time he tees off, he’ll obviously be in good position to finally break through.
