Blue shirt again. I tell you, everybody who wins, wears a blue shirt on Friday. It seems to be a trend as Retief Goosen positioned himself for a run at Firestone on Saturday and Sunday.

A fine seven-under two-day total helped Goosen claim the lead.

Goosen is in my fantasy lineup this week, which bodes well for me.

Justin Leonard and Phil Mickelson are also in the hunt, just one back at minus-six so far.

At minus-five are Peter Hanson, Bo Van Pelt, and yesterday's leader Bubba Watson.

Many, many good players are also in position to do something great on the weekend as well.

The bottom of the leaderboard is a bit of a surprise as well with names like Henrik Stenson at plus-14, Anthony Kim at plus-11, Camilo Villegas at plus-eight, and of course, on the south side of the leader board at plus-six, Tiger Woods.

All ya had to do was put the phone numbers in Steve's phone, not yours.

Fantasy action as follows: The first day's squad of Stricker, Westwood, Holmes, and Kuchar netted 26 points.

On day two, Westwood was replaced by Goosen and Holmes by Nick Watney, which worked out well as Westwood missed the cut and Holmes is not playing that well.

The second day netted me 58 points for a two-day total of 84 points.

This team is at first, seventh, seventh, and 24th, which is fine for two days so far.

I am still well ahead of all the Yahoo Fantasy Golf experts except one for the 2010 season.

I will join you again soon.

Enjoy the weekend!
