Matt Kuchar (USA) and Harris English (USA) held on to the lead they had yesterday to take the QBE Shootout, a PGA exhibition tournament with teams of two. Today’s play format was Four-Ball, where the best score of the two per hole counts.
They could have had a mediocre round today and still win but they did the best round of the day, with a score of 60. The winning pair had ten birdies and an eagle. They total score was -37.
Although Harris and English were far in first place, the rest of the field was compact. Second were Rory Sabbatini (SVK) and Kevin Tway (USA) with -28 in total and -11 today. T2 were Lanto Griffin (USA) and Mackenzie Hughes (CAN). And also T2 were Kevin Na (USA) and Sean O’Hair (USA), who led the tournament after day 1.
