Nicolas Colsaerts defeated Justin Rose 4 and 2

How it ended: Colsaerts never let off the gas, making birdie on three of his last six holes as he took down the world No. 6 in the first result of the second-round matches.

Matt Kuchar defeated Sergio Garcia 2 and 1

How it ended: This match was all square through five holes, but Kuchar drew first blood with a birdie on No. 6. It was a lead he would never relinquish. Kuchar has white-hot Colsaerts in round three.

And this could be his year.

Tim Clark defeated Thorbjorn Olesen 3 and 2

How it ended: Olesen (my pick!) was never in it. He bogeyed the third hole, went down one, and never really sniffed the lead again.

Ian Poulter defeated Bo Van Pelt 3 and 1

How it ended: Poulter got down early, but battled back and won with a conceded hole on No. 17. He will face Tim Clark in a tasty matchup on Saturday.

Hunter Mahan defeated Richard Sterne 4 and 3

How it ended: No breathing room for Sterne here. Mahan won four of the last six holes and moves on to the third round in an attempt to defend his title.

Scott Piercy defeated Luke Donald 7 and 6

How it ended: This was the biggest rout of the entire tournament, and at the hands of a former champion, no less. Piercy won seven of the 12 holes they played, Donald won zero. Pretty incredible stuff. We're down to one No. 1 seed left (Louis Oosthuizen).
