Blake Adams shot a second round 64 to move into a tie for the lead at the HP Byron Nelson Invitational played in Irving, Texas this weekend at the TPC Las Colinas Course.

Also in contention are Cameron Beckman, who shot 61, Steve Elkington and Jeff Overrton. Beckman is also in the lead at minus 10, followed by Elk and Overton at minus eight.

The weather was nice at 80 degrees most of the day and the greens, soft from the rains, were easy pickings for some of these veteran players.

Blake Adams, who I confess I've never heard of, turned pro in 2001 and his best finish was a tie for 10th at Pebble Beach earlier this season.

Nice round, Blake. A couple of decent rounds now will shoot you up the Fed-Ex points standings, and the money list for 2010. A win?  I think not. Too many people to beat on Sunday that have been here before.

Beckman will not be on the leader board come Sunday's back nine I'm afraid as well.

My choice to win this week, Heath is a bit off at only minus one so far, nine shots off the lead.

One solid round could get him there on Sunday, however. Other guys are firing low 60s  so anything could happen on Saturday and Sunday.

Your players with a very good chance to win this thing includes veteran Steve Elkington, Ben Crane and Sean O' Hair. All have posted low scores and have momentum going into the weekend.

My week-end fantasy line-up ended up leaving the starters in after all, as they all played well on the second nine.

Slocum is in 38th and could be replaced with Kenny Perry who is now on number six at even par.

Dustin Johnson is at minus four and in 14th place.

J.B. Holmes shot three under and fought his way back to even par in 57th place, and my C-player, Ben Crane, had a great day shooting 64 and cruising into fifth place for the tournament.

Remember what I said about being named Ben in a Texas golf tournament.

Crane and Johnson both have a shot to make some noise also this weekend at Las Colinas.

Adoios, amigos' and buenas noches in Texas.
