Not only did Peter's score improve in round two at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship, but his overall play was impressive especially given his lack of tournament play of late.
Peter missed only two greens in his second round which was played at the slightly more difficult TPC at Las Colinas course and gave himself plenty of birdie opportunities, four of which he was able to convert.
Peter opened with a birdie at the par four first after a drive well left of the nearly reachable green. He followed by creating chances at the 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 8th holes before finally converting with a second birdie at the 9th from 15 feet.
At the 10th hole, Peter's tee shot was right and caught the fairway trap. From there he was only able to advance it short of the green. He then pitched it into the greenside bunker and when he was unable to get up and down he had taken double bogey and much of the good work earlier was brought undone.
He bounced back immediately by almost holing his second to the 11th. He missed a good chance at the 12th but at the 14th, after a second across the water to 6 feet, he was back to two under for the day and one under for the tournament.
Peter finished at that score and finds himself in 40th position heading into the weekend. He is nine shots behind the leaders but only six shots out of third place.
