Mayakoba Classic: Matt Kuchar Leads, Cameron Champ Two Back

LAS VEGAS NV- NOVEMBER 02 Jordan Spieth lines up a putt on the 9th hole during the second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin

Cameron Davis and Matt Jones are the only Australians to have made the weekend at the Mayakoba Classic at Playa del Carmen near Cancun in Mexico but they are a long way from the lead of Matt Kuchar who produced consecutive rounds of 64 to lead by two over rookie Cameron Champ.

"It's an fantastic resort, Mayakoba".

If Kuchar was able to go on and win it would be a great boost for next week's Australian Open where is is an invitee in a field weakened by the absence of several of Australia's leading players. "But I had a good time at the office today as well". The weekend will not include Jordan Spieth. For the second straight day, Champ missed only two fairways, key to good scoring at Mayakoba.

One of his former roommates had no such issues.

Also at 65 were Bud Cauley as he returns from a vehicle accident at the Memorial in early June, defending champion Patton Kizzire, who made back-to-back eagles on the par-5 5th hole and by holing out on the par-4 6th, and Sydneysider Matt Jones.

Rickie Fowler was among those at 66.

Cubs' Theo Epstein Clears Air On Kris Bryant's Trade Availability
The Cubs have reportedly been telling teams that almost every player on the team - including Bryant - is available. He explained the Cubs have "never operated with untouchables".

Kuchar has slipped to No.40 in the world, failed to reach the third round of the FedExCup playoffs for the first time in a decade and didn't play in the Ryder Cup for the first time in 10 years.

The family vibe continued in Kuchar's group when his wife, Sybi, stepped in for playing partner Zach Johnson's ailing caddie after nine holes.

Ironically, Kuchar had himself an emergency caddie situation entering the tournament.

"I knew I had a par 5 following it, and I figured I was probably going to make double there and birdie on the next".

Kuchar and Johnson live at Sea Island on the Georgia coast. Gary Woodland shot 2-over 73 in Round 2 but still made the cut on the number, extending his Tour-best cuts made streak to 15. Going back to an old driver didn't help as he hit only six fairways, making it tough to score for anyone out of the rough.

An eagle-three at the fifth and back-to-back birdies from the seventh left Champ requiring a final-hole gain to match the course record, only for him to card his only bogey of the day.
