According to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda, "Arjun used his new Fourteen Golf prototype wedges to play some pretty amazing golf. During the second round he chipped his way to the lead, placing the ball within tap-in distances. His 7-under 63 included three straight birdies which included a wedge into five feet on the fifth hole, his 14th of the event."

Atwal shot rounds of 67, 63, 69, and 71 to finish 10-under 270. His second round 63 is his personal best score of the 2012 season and has provided him encouragement leading into the next PGA Tour events. "Arjun has found his late season magic. This time last year he fought to qualify for the FedEx Cup and the year before he won the Wyndam. We're confident he will finish this season strong," added Kamoda.
