Kuchar Leads USPGA





After day two of the USPGA Championship the leader is Matt Kuchar. He is currently one stroke ahead after another day of less than perfect weather.

The second day started much like the first with delays due to the early morning fog, this meant that once again the round would not be completed on the day and we would have to wait until Saturday to found out where the cut will lie.

The current leader board is well dominated by the Americans with Rory McIlroy and Simon Khan giving the Europeans some exposure. Both players sit in a chasing pack three shots off the lead at five under par. McIlroy carded an opening round of 71 whilst putting in a much improved 68 on the second day.

Kuchar is currently at 8 under par after having to play a total of 22 holes on the first day which included an opening round of 67. A second round of 69 left him top of the leader board and will give him a needed confidence heading into the weekend play.

Khan had looked like taking the lead when he was joint leader heading into the final three rounds. However three bogeys on the final three holes left him off the pace and disappointed. The sharp drop in form may have been to do with Khan having to play 29 holes on the opening day which was more than any other player.

It had been difficult to keep up with play and who lied where on the leader board due to the delays, Woods had to wait until 6pm to even get back onto the golf course and managed to play six holes all of which ended with pars.
