After opening with a 4-under 68 at Spyglass Hill, Ludvig Aberg has played 36 bogey-free holes at Pebble Beach, following a 65 on Friday with a 5-under 67.
“It was really quite stress free,” said Aberg, who was pleased with his patience. “I didn’t try to force anything, I didn’t try to hit shots that I didn’t feel like I could pull off. I felt like we did that great today and yesterday.”
Aberg, who won the RSM Classic in November, is one of 11 players in the field making his tournament debut. He’s hopeful that the weather will allow for one more round so he can chase win No. 2 on the PGA Tour.
“Even though the weather looks pretty bad tomorrow, I think you’ve got to be prepared to play, be prepared to play a rough round of golf where the weather is going to be windy and raining and then just be OK with that,” he said. “We’ll see what happens, but I’ll be ready to play tomorrow.”
