We hear it all the time. So tough to back up a super low round with another one. Kudos to Troy Merritt for following his 61 with a 67 today.

After he finishes up, Troy Merritt just might channel his inner Zach Johnson when asked who he is: "I'm just a normal guy from Iowa."

Troy Merritt was an all-state high school basketball player in Iowa. Playing a little four-corners offense to protect the lead right now.

Great touch from just off 17th green by Troy Merritt. With all of the pressure on him, looked like he's playing a Tuesday practice round.

Troy Merritt throws a dart on 16 and that could be the eventual clincher right there. Already leads by two in search of first career win.

Troy Merritt holding on to lead

Always laughable when people think pro golfers can't turn it around in a hurry. Tiger? Nope. Talking 'bout Troy Merritt. Five straight MCs.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Tiger keeps talking process. Went from a few swings to a few holes to full round to multiple rounds. Next step? Full tourney. Not there yet.
