Koepka leads with Rahm sunk far from the head

The American continues with his good form and is the reference in the WGC-Workday (-11). Rahm had one of his worst laps in recent times.


American Brooks Koepka became the new provisional leader of the WGC-Workday Championship on the PGA Tour on Friday, completing the second round with a record of 66 strokes (-6) that allowed him to add 133 (-11). His compatriots Billy Horschel and Collin Morikawa along with Australian Cameron Smith shared second place, adding 134 (-10) after handing out cards of 67 (-5), 64 (-8) and 66 (-6), respectively.

Koepka, 30, who is seeking his second PGA Tour title in 2021 after winning the Waste Management Phoenix Open on February 7, was perfect all the way until on the last hole, par 4 of 18 made a bogey, having made seven birdies. "I felt very comfortable with the way he hit the ball and also how well he ran both on the fairway and on the green," Koepka said. "Now you have to continue with the same forcefulness throughout the weekend in order to fight for the title" .

Morikawa became the golfer with the best record during the day by signing a 64-stroke card after making nine birdies and bogey on the para-3 on the 14th hole that would cost him to share the lead. But he is presented as a candidate to fight for the title during the weekend at The Concession Golf Club, Bradenton (Florida)

The Spanish Jon Rahm sank after losing 36 places in the provisional classification after registering 76 strokes (+6) and adding 144 (even). Rahm, second in the world rankings, shared the 43rd spot with five other golfers after he made four birdies, a double bogey and six bogeys, including the last four that were consecutive from hole 14 to hole 17, which was one one of the worst runs he's had in recent PGA Tour tournaments.

The Spanish player did not have control with his shots, both long and putt on the green and his chances of fighting for the title are already slim. The Spanish Rafael Cabrera had a slight improvement in relation to the first round, but he is 59 in the provisional classification with the sum of 147 strokes (+3) .
