Thailand Golf Championship--Runaway Train

After the second day of the Thailand Golf Championship sanctioned by the Asian Tour, Lee Westwood has opened a 14 stroke lead and is ahead of American John Daly.  After starting the tournament with a 12 under 60, Westwood followed that up with an 8 under 64 to enter the weekend at 20 under par.  That score ties a record on the Asian Tour for rounds under par after the first two rounds of a tournament.

After the round, Westwood commented and said that his second round was better because of the tougher conditions.

The wind was blowing much harder on Friday, with scores for most of the field higher than the first round.

Westwood should run away with the tournament, so the main race will be for second place.  Daly, who has no exemptions to play anywhere next year, so a high finish will definitely help to ensure he may be able to play somewhere.  His game has held up pretty well so far.  If he can make a few more putts (35 the first day), he will find himself in a good position to finish high.
