Kuchar shares Mayakoba lead as wife caddies for Johnson

No14-Mayakoba

It was the second consecutive day that Kuchar shot seven under par at the El Camaleón in Playa del Carmen after his bogey-free opening round on Thursday.

Kuchar escaped his only big mishap on Friday with a 35-foot bogey putt on the 12th hole but he had eight birdies for a 7-under 64 that gave him a two-shot lead over PGA TOUR rookie Cameron Champ going into the weekend. "I figured she'd be a good one to handle Zach, and Zach would definitely go easy on her".

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.

Kuchar, who will be one of the star attractions at the Australian Open in Sydney next week and the World Cup in Melbourne the week after, is out to end more than four years without a PGA Tour victory.

"I forgot what par was, to be honest", he said. "If you're driving it well, you can make some birdies, which I was able to do today".

Cowboys' Jones not planning coaching changes
That said, if the Cowboys can't flip their fortunes around, expect some significant changes coming in the offseason. Nonetheless, Jones said he thinks Prescott and Dallas is "completely capable" of performing at a high level.

Kuchar, looking for his first worldwide win since 2015, played exceptionally well on the front nine, with five straight birdies at one point.

Kuchar was at 20-under 193, breaking by three shots his personal best on the tour, and by one shot is 54-hole score to par.

Although Champ topped the leaderboard when he walked off the course, Kuchar, who started the day in a three-way tie for the lead with Dominic Bozzelli and Kramer Hickok, was soon in hot pursuit. Jordan Spieth misses the cut. He had a 69 and was outside the cut line with half of the field still on the course in good scoring conditions.

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.

Among those in the large group at 65 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 rankings. Eighteen players were within five shots of the lead.
