10 degrees colder, 40 km/hr winds: Talor Gooch leads as the weather changes on Sea Island

From PGA TOUR Daily Wrap-up, by AP:

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- A strong wind off the Atlantic Ocean swept over Sea Island on Friday, and it was no problem for Talor Gooch of Oklahoma as he handled the exposed Seaside course for a 5-under 65 to take a one-shot lead in The RSM Classic.

As expected, the balmy conditions of the opening round that led to record scoring gave way to 25 mph wind and temperatures that were 10 degrees cooler.

"The only commonality between yesterday and today is that we played 18 holes," said Zach Johnson, who lives at Sea Island and toiled for a 1-under 71 on the Plantation course to finish three shots behind.

Gooch matched the low score of the round -- Taylor Moore had a hole-in-one on the 17th hole at Seaside for a 65 -- and was at 13-under 129.  Read more
