The Players Championship 2012 Leaderboard: Phil Mickelson Makes Cut, Zach Johnson Surges

Phil Mickelson shot one-under par in the first round of the 2012 Players Championship, and he was able to repeat that score once again on Friday as he made the cut. Despite a rough start to his day, Mickelson shot -2 during the final 10 holes to end his day at -1. He now sits tied with many others at two-under par for the tournament, putting him in 30th place overall.

Tiger Woods had a big second round, shooting a -4 to improve him to two-under through two rounds. Zach Johnson was the other big story of Friday, shooting six-under par to improve his score to -8. He, Kevin Na and Matt Kuchar all sit tied atop the leaderboard. Harris english shot a 67 to move up to second place overall at seven-under.

Rory McIlroy struggled throughout the first two rounds and was sent home early after finishing at +4. Vijay Singh and Ernie Els were among the more notable veterans to miss the cut.

Look for the third round of the 2012 Players Championship to begin early on Saturday morning.
