2012 Players Championship: Tee Times, Pairings, TV Schedule For Friday

The second round of The Players Championship tees off from TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra on Friday morning, with plenty of big names trying to chase down the top of the leaderboard. Thursday's first round yielded some atypical low rounds, with a forgiving course setup. Ian Poulter and Martin Laird co-lead after low rounds of 65, lighting up the stadium course with birdies on the back side. Cleveland native Jason Dufner, fresh off his big win in New Orleans, shot a middling round of 73 and is 1-over. A double at No. 5 as he came down the stretch threw his round off even further, putting him in jeopardy of making the cut if he cannot make some noise on Friday. He goes off early at 8:29 a.m. ET with fellow Northeast Ohio favorite Ben Curtis, who's 4-under and just three shots off the lead.

Golf Channel will continue its extended coverage for golf's "5th major." The broadcast will begin at 1:00 p.m. ET and run through 7:00 p.m. ET. The afternoon coverage will certainly feature the power grouping of Rickie Fowler, Tiger Woods, and Hunter Mahan. Woods will spend his second straight Friday afternoon battling the cut line.
