Stats: A record-tying Championship

Eight notable second-round stats from Golf World contributing writer Brett Avery, who compiles the Rank and File statistical sections for the magazine's major championship coverage. For more numbers throughout each round, follow him on Twitter at @BWAvery.

1a. Bradley and Steele are making their first career major-championship starts.

5a. Woods said following his round he would not play next week in Greensboro, N.C., thereby missing the FedExCup playoffs for the first time. There is the prospect that the Australian Open in November will be his next start counting toward World Ranking calculations. If so Woods, who began the week No. 30 in the world, would in the interim lose ranking points from five 2009 starts (win at the BMW Championship, three seconds and a T-11) and have a lone victory in the calculations ('09 Australian Masters).
