Sebastian Munoz leads at 12-under par at the halfway point of The Greenbrier Classic, having posted rounds of 61-69. Here are three takeaways heading into the weekend in West Virginia.

Munoz is rolling the rock

Munoz has been unreal on the The Old White TPC greens through 36 holes, making 270 feet worth of putts in two days. The Colombian has tallied 19-one putts, and has needed just 51 strokes with the flatstick.

Stat Round 1 Round 2 Total Rank
SG: Putting 4.914 2.242 7.156 1
Putts per GIR 1.467 1.75 1.593 4

"I made a lot of clutch putts just to keep the momentum going, and for some reason, I just feel comfortable on these greens," Munoz told pgatour.com.

Mickelson's putting woes

While Munoz feels great on the greens, the same can't be said for Phil Mickelson, who registered 31 putting strokes on Day 2. The 47-year-old made just 40 feet of putts in his second-round 72 on Friday.

Stat Round 1 Round 2 Total Rank
SG: Putting 2.111 -3.582 -1.471 108th
Putts per GIR 1.7 1.917 1.818 T81st

"This has probably been the two worst putting days this year," Mickelson told the Golf Channel. "It's led to some poor scoring."

Nos. 6-8 have been ruthless

The three-hole stretch has been a test for the players in the field this week, producing just 98 birdies over two rounds.
