Really neat to see Todd Demsey make it back to the PGA Tour. And super news for Colt Knost: no Nationwide Tour event to conflict with Masters wee...oh wait, scratch that thought.
Lickliter, a two-time tour winner, led a large group of tour-card retreads, thanks to opening with consecutive 62s, the lowest 36-hole total in tour history had this been an official event.
"It's unofficial, but nobody's ever done it before, which counts for something," he said. "It's not quite Neil Armstrong on the moon, but it's up there."
Lickliter, who has declined comment after every round this week because he didn't want to derail his concentration, was asked if his opening 36 marked the two best rounds he's ever played. He took a drag on his cigarette and paused for moment.
"I think it's the two best rounds anybody has ever played," he said.
No doubt, it's impressive to fire back to back 62's, but really, if you are the medalist of an event, it's not The Show.
Golfweek's Ray McCarthy featured notes and this rationale from Lickliter for ignoring the press all week:
“Hogan didn’t talk to the press,” he said.
