Len Mattiace blistered Montreux Golf & Country Club for a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 in his second round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.
Mattiace doesn't have any fantasy value, but for his owners of yore, they will really appreciate today's turn-back-the-clock effort. His numbers jump off the page: 13 (of 14) fairways, 15 GIR, 26 putts, seven birdies. He had a trio of highlights, beginning at the 6th hole, where he poured in a birdie putt from 25'0". At the 12th, he chipped in for another birdie from 12 yards in front of the green. Then, at the last, his birdie putt from 20'10" disappeared. The journeyman hadn't gone as low as 65 since carding the same number at the 2005 Barclays Classic, which was a par 71. This is his first payday on the PGA TOUR since last year's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which was his only start of 2009.
