Thursday in this space, we note that one expert called the first round conditions in Sea Island, Ga., “Room of Commerce” dates. Friday? It’s like a trip to the dentist. The winds picked up, and the scores skyrocketed. Here are three things you need to know after the second round of Classic RSM, playing in the Seaside and Plantation Courses at Sea Island Resort.

Taylor Gooch in the lead

The best wind navigator was Talor Gooch, who tracked the first lap 64 on Plantation and second lap 65 on Seaside. He is in 13th overall, one stroke ahead of first-round leaders Sebastian Munoz and John Huh, and two shots ahead of Taylor Moore and Mackenzie Hughes.

On Friday, Gooch made a 4- to 3-hole stretch on the front – he hit the ball 368 yards, par 4 5 and 172 yards, par 3 6, then won 583 yards, par-5 class 7 after dropping a 66-foot putt – and he added two more birdies on the back.

“I think my game produced some good stuff in some ways,” said Gooch, winless in his fifth season on the PGA Tour. “And I’ve been training my glutes for years, but especially the last six, eight months with ball control and training my glutes with placing. For my game, if I can get into the fairway, as simple as that sounds, if I can get into the fairway, it’s a matter of how many bets I will make. Hopefully we can keep hitting the ball and see if we can make some good points this weekend. “

What’s the difference in a day?

How much have things changed from Thursday to Friday? In the first round, the players totaled less than 542; in the second, they are more than 126. And according to the PGA Tour, the average score difference between the first and second round on the Seaside Course is 4.65, the third-largest difference from round one to round two in a Tour event since 1983, when records start to be saved. (The biggest difference was 5.00, at the 1987 Children’s Open.)

Perhaps no player felt more at ease than Munoz, who opened 10 under 60 at Seaside, then shot two under 70 at Plantation. In total, of the 71 players who made the cut, only eight were better than the day before.

“Ten strokes worse than yesterday, but it feels really good,” Munoz said.

Harris English missed the cut

Among the players who missed the chance, with a score of four below, was Ryder Cupper Harris English, former world No. 1 Jason Day, Max Homa, Harry Higgs, Joaquin Niemann, Stewart Cink and Keegan Bradley.
