Matt Kuchar Round 2 highlights from Mayakoba

The seven-times PGA Tour winner's most impressive shot of the day came on the par-four 12th, where he sank a 19-foot putt to limit the damage to a bogey, his only one of the day.

Champ - already a victor on the PGA Tour season - had set the early clubhouse target after firing a round-of-the-day 62, with defending champion Patton Kizzire one of six players a further shot back in tied-third.

Champ won the Sanderson Farms Championship two weeks ago and his rapidly building fan base as a result of his exceptional length from the tee will build further this week. "But I had a good time at the office today as well".

"It's kind of nice to look back and know that I've won on every stage", said Hickcok, who was also a two-time victor on the Mackenzie Tour a year ago.

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 past year on the developmental Web.com tour, where he won the DAP Championship and had five other top-10 finishes.

But Masters runner-up and world number nine Rickie Fowler is still in the hunt after shooting a three-under par 68 on Friday to go into the weekend tied for 20th with 13 other players.


Lopez, of Mexico, capped her day with an ace for eagle on No. 17 and a birdie on No. 18 to grab the lead.

More than half of the field of 132 posted scores in the 60s and a group of 15 players were just one behind the leaders. She'll enter the final round looking for her first LPGA victory.

SHOT OF THE DAY: Full disclosure - we don't know exactly how this shot played out, but we're going with Champ hitting 3-wood over the cave bunker because it's so nice to look at.

2 share lead at Tour Champions season finale: PHOENIX - Paul Goydos and Tim Petrovic shot 8-under 63 to share the lead in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, leaving points leader Bernhard Langer seven strokes back in the PGA Tour Champions' season finale.

Former North Dakota State golfer Amy Olson is tied for 11th at 1-over.
