PGA: Keith Mitchell alone in his world

by archysport

American Keith Mitchell handed in a second 64 (-8) card at The CJ Cup at Summit on Friday in Las Vegas to easily grab first place in the competition after two rounds.

Second at the end of the first 18 holes by a 62 (-10) record, the 29-year-old continued his successes, wedging an eagle, seven birdies and a single boguey in his second outing on the field of Summit Golf Club, in the state of Nevada.

He will begin the rounds of the weekend with a five-strike lead over his closest pursuers, a quartet made up of South Korean Seonghyeon Kim, Australian Adam Scott, as well as Americans Jordan Spieth and Harry Higgs.

The only Canadian present at the event, Mackenzie Hughes, made a name for himself by presenting the best card of the day. The Maple Leaf representative hit the white object 62 (-10) occasions.

On his second day, he had a clear eight birdies and an eagle. The 30-year-old has thus made an impressive jump of 48 places in the standings and shares eighth place with seven other participants, including the leader after one day, Robert Streb. He is still seven strokes behind the leader.

All 78 golfers present at the tournament seem to have found a way to overcome the difficulties that the course could offer, since 77 of them have a cumulative equal to par of 144 or better after 36 holes.

Only the American Kevin Streelman has a cumulative higher than normal, he who hit the white object 145 (+1) times.
