Signs of progress for Nathan

Nathan has produced a great second round at the Honda Classic at Palm Beach Gardens in Florida, his round of 67 bettered only by the ridiculously good 64 of Rory Sabbatini.

The round moved Nathan from the threat of another missed cut to even par and into a share of 18th position at the halfway stage of the tournament. Nathan’s round and perhaps his tournament were turned around by a quick burst of three birdies early in his back nine today.

“It’s still not feeling great but I did make a few putts in the middle which was nice,” said Nathan after his round. “The wind was not as strong as yesterday but it was still blowing pretty hard.”

Nathan plans on taking a week off in Florida next week and so is keen to take advantage of the position he has created for himself at this stage of this week’s event.

Poor weekend for Nathan

Nathan has finished well back at the Mayakoba Classic after weekend rounds of 71 and 75 saw him slip to a disappointing 74th.

Nathan will now head to the East Coast for this week’s Honda Classic in Florida looking to get things on track as quickly as possible. It has been frustrating start to the season for him,

Nathan has played next week’s venue at Palm Beach Gardens well in the past having one of his better finishes of 2010 there last year and finishing third in 2008.
