Bob Hope leaderboard a sign of the times

After two rounds of the Bob Hope Classic Jhonattan Vegas and Boo Weekley are tied at the top. The top ten is a mix of veterans and relative unknowns in the yearly shootout in the desert. Scores are always low and the finishes are usually tight in the multi-course event. Vegas had a successful amateur career before turning pro two years ago and joins a group of young players looking to make a name for themselves on tour.

While this tournament is hard to judge until the weekend when the players will be on the same course, it certainly shows that anyone can win a given tournament. The quality of play on the PGA Tour has escalated to a level that makes utter dominance a tricky task. Golfers face the strongest fields in the world on a weekly basis and for someone like Tiger Woods looking to regain his former glory it makes it that more difficult. Three more rounds remain at the Bob Hope and there is no doubt that the leaders will near 30 under par by Sunday afternoon.
