Despite a triple-bogey on the frightening 14th, Paul Casey has remained near the top of the leaderboard at even par.  Outisde of the 14th and a bogey on 17, Casey has followed up his 69 on Thursday with consistent play in the second round.

Els has quietly had a very solid round with consistent play of his own throughout the day.  He parred the first three holes on the front nine (his back nine) and drained a birdie putt on the par-4, 331-yard 4th and is at two-under on the day, even-par for the tournament.

The two remain four strokes behind the leader Graeme McDowell.
