Matt Kuchar claims sole lead of Mayakoba Golf Classic

PGA Tour: Matt Jones one back in Mexico Thursday's golf roundup: Kuchar shares lead in Mexico
Cassandra Castillo | 10 November, 2018, 14:45

Jordan Spieth was likely done for the year.

"I was able to come back with a couple of birdies and I felt like I was in control".

Kuchar was at 14-under 128.

"Yesterday was kind of a bogey-free day and just easy, and everything else today was about the same", Kuchar said (via PGA Tour.com).

Champ was sensational in just his third career PGA Tour start on Friday, mixing eight birdies and an eagle with one bogey for a round of nine-under par 62 that gave him the outright lead before Kuchar overtook him later in the day.

Champ already is the talk of the tour for the speed of his swing and how far he hits the ball, though there is more to his game than length.

Two weeks after winning the Sanderson Farms Championship in MS, he worked on a few tweaks in his swing and was in full control of where the ball was going. Playing his second straight week in the fall - and his last tournament before his wedding - Spieth traded birdies and bogeys and had to settle for an even-par 71, leaving him in need of a good round Friday just to stick around for the weekend.

"If you're not driving it well, this course is extremely hard", said the seven-times PGA Tour victor.

"This course I feel like is very suitable for everyone".

The cut was at four-under 138. He's only two shots behind Kuchar.

Hickock, a buddy of three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, is playing in just his eighth PGA Tour event and his fourth this season after spending a year ago on the developmental Web.com tour, where he won the DAP Championship and had five other top-10 finishes. He had a 69 and was outside the cut line with half of the field still on the course in good scoring conditions. He is due to get married over Thanksgiving weekend.

Among those in the large group at 65 apart from Lahiri was Abraham Ancer, whose tie for fourth last week in Las Vegas moved him to No. 98 in the world, making him the first Mexican golfer to crack the top 100 in the world ranking.

Eighteen players were within five shots of the lead.

Rickie Fowler (68) and Tony Finau (65) were at eight-under 134, along with their Ryder Cup captain, Jim Furyk, who had a 65.
