The Justin Timberlake Shriners Open 2012 is underway, and Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III is in the thick of the action after the heartbreaking loss to the Europeans last week.

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.
