Round 2 results

• Matt Kuchar (No. 21 seed) def. Sergio Garcia (12) 2 and 1. Garcia didn't have much of a chance on the back nine as Kuchar dropped birdie putts at Nos. 11, 14, 15 and 17. Garcia finished at 2 under par.

• Ian Poulter (11) def. Bo Van Pelt (22) 3 and 1. Poulter had a clean scorecard, no bogeys and six birdies. Van Pelt also had six birdies, but three bogeys sent him home.

• Jason Day (41) def. Russell Henley (56) in 19 holes. Day birdied the first extra hole, capping a comeback from 2-down through 14.

• Hunter Mahan (23) def. Richard Sterne (55) 4 and 3. The defending champion won four holes in succession, from No. 10 through No. 13, to win easily. He had just one bird in that stretch as Sterne faded.

• Nicolas Colsaerts (37) def. Justin Rose (5) 4 and 2. After losing the first hole with a bogey, Colsaerts went 6 under par, routing Rose, whose tournament was sent off track by three consecutive bogeys at Nos. 5-7.

• Tim Clark (59) def. Thorbjorn Olesen (38) 3 and 2. At 4 under par through 16 holes, Clark had a comfortable lead throughout; Olesen didn't get his first birdie until the 11th hole.

• Bubba Watson (8) def. Jim Furyk (25) in 22 holes. Furyk botched a chip shot in sudden death, allowing Watson to win with a par. Furyk did not play well in regulation, but Watson was also 1 over par, necessitating overtime.

• Martin Kaymer (26) def. Rafael Cabrera Bello (58) 2 and 1. Kaymer didn't make much happen - he parred the last six holes - be he avoided mistakes.

• Fredrik Jacobson (45) def. Marcus Fraser (52) 4 and 3. Not much suspense for Jacobson, who took a 2-up lead after two holes and built it to 3-up at the turn. Fraser was without a birdie, 2 over for the day.

• Steve Stricker (14) def. Nick Watney (19) in 21 holes. Stricker never trailed, but he didn't win until Watney missed an 8- foot putt, making bogey, at the third hole of sudden death. Stricker played well; he was 6 under par.

• Graeme McDowell (17) def. Alexander Noren (49) in 20 holes. It's difficult to fathom that McDowell had to go to overtime to win because he played superbly. He was 5 under par through regulation. Noren's second shot on the 20th hole went into the desert to end it.

• Webb Simpson (15) def. Peter Hanson (18) 1-up. The defending U.S. Open champion made a 16-foot putt at No. 18 to close out Hanson, who shot even par.

• Robert Garrigus (36) def. Louis Oosthuizen (4) 3 and 2. After bogeys at Nos. 2 and 3, Garrigus was ablaze, going 6 under par and the ex-British Open champion fell back.

• Scott Piercy (35) def. Luke Donald (3) 7 and 6. It was no contest as Piercy eagled No. 5, and threw in birds at Nos. 2, 6, 8, 9 and 12. He was 8 under through 13 holes. Donald double-bogeyed No. 1 and was essentially done.

• Shane Lowry (64) def. Carl Pettersson (33) 6 and 5. The man who sent Rory McIlroy home Thursday played even better Friday: Lowry was 5 under when he won at No. 13.

• Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño (31) def. Charles Howell III (63) 6 and 5. A day after eliminating Tiger Woods, Howell didn't make a birdie and finished 2 over par through 13 holes. Fernandez-Castaño was on his game at 5 under par.
