Day two of pro-ams took place today at En-Joie Golf Club as part of the Dick's Sporting Goods Open.

U.S. President's Cup captain Jay Haas tees off on ten and hits a bomb down the hill.

Haas with his birdie attempt, just slips by, he can't believe it.

Mark Calcavecchia with his wife Brenda on the bag, he stuffs his approach to four feet and rolls in the birdie putt with ease.

Jose Coceres with just a wedge into 10, sticks it to 3 feet.

Wednesday's winner Gary Hallburg putting for birdie on one, just slides by.

In the afternoon, Charles Schwab Cup points leader Bernhard Langer putting for birdie on one, drains it. Keep an eye on him tomorrow.

Ahead of him on the course and just behind him on the points list, Colin Montgomerie putting on one, not quite enough but I'm sure those will drop tomorrow.
Monty and Langer spoke before the round about returning to the area and the opportunities presented by the Champions Tour.

"It's great that Bernhard here and myself and a number of other great, great champions of the past and it's super that we can come out here and show the community our skills and then they support it the way that they do. So I think we both win," said Colin Montgomerie.

"It only took two events out here and I knew this is where I want to be the rest of my professional golfing life, not knowing how many years there would be but this is where I want to be. It's a lot of fun, it's great competition, you're playing with and against some of the legends in the game," said Bernhard Langer.

Most of the focus in the pro-am is on the player and his playing partners. NewsChannel 34's Sarah Tranelli got the chance to see a different side of the game when she was a caddy for Jeff Sluman.

Sluman's caddy Greg Lloyd said there are three keys to being a good caddy.

"You show up, you keep up and you shut up. That's probably the three most important things, so if you do those, you are going to be pretty successful," said Lloyd.
