No other golfers from the 2012 Ryder Cup are participating this weekend in Las Vegas, NV at TPC Summerlin, as many are taking a sabbatical after the emotional weekend at Medinah.
Ryan Moore, the Day 1 leader, is teeing off at 3:03 p.m. ET, but will not have the lead on the first tee box.
Jonas Blixt has charged the field with a second round 7-under thru 15 holes, and Moore will have to continue his strong play to stay in the lead.
Here's a look at the current leaderboard, some highlights from the second day of action and notable golfers that have a chance at walking away from Vegas with some hardware.
