The Players Championship 2012 Leaderboard: Martin Laird Tied For 5th After 2nd Round

After a sharp opening-round 65 in the TPC at Sawgrass on Thursday, Colorado State alum Martin Laird struggled during round two -- more specifically, he struggled on the back nine of Friday's round. After a two-under front nine performance, Laird held sole possession of first place. But he had a rough finish, going bogie, double bogie, bogie on 16, 17 and 18, respectively. He ended the day at -6 in a five-way tie for fifth place. But he is just two strokes off the lead.
