RIGHT: Kuchar is tied for the lead after the opening round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

Kuchar had a second successive 64 and is now 14-under, while Cameron Champ, who won recently and is going for his second win three weeks added a brilliant nine-under 62 to his first round of 68 and is now 12-under 130.

"I'm reaching out when I'm home and trying to pick his brain a little bit here and there, but really just watching him play, what he does at practice", Hickok said.

Matt Kuchar carded a 7-under 64 Friday to claim the second-round lead at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, but all the buzz surrounded rookie phenom Cameron Champ.

Jordan Spieth playing his second straight week in the fall - and his last tournament before his wedding - Spieth traded birdies and bogeys and had to settle for an even-par 71, leaving him in need to a good round Friday just to stick around for the weekend.

Kuchar birdied five straight on the front nine and picked up three more birdies coming in to offset his only bogey of the day at the par-four 12th, where his tee shot found the bushes before he limited the damage with a long bogey putt.

"I knew she had caddied for me before and was friendly with Zach Johnson, and figured she would be good to handle it, and Zach would go easy on her", Kuchar said.

Junaid out of series as NZ bat in second ODI v Pakistan
A PCB spokesperson had confirmed that Imam was conscious inside the ambulance while being driven to the hospital. Mohammad Hafeez stayed unbeaten on 27 and raised Pakistan's victory with a crisp boundary off Tim Southee.

Two weeks after winning the Sanderson Farms Championship in MS, he worked on a few tweaks in his swing and was in full control of where the ball was going.

"If you're not driving it well, this course is extremely hard", said the seven-times PGA Tour victor.

Three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, playing his last tournament of the calendar year, missed the cut.

Ryder Cup stars Rickie Fowler and Tony Finau are five off the pace in a share of 20th, while Spieth missed the cut despite posting a two-under 69 on another day of low scoring.

Kuchar, Hickok and Bozzelli led by one stroke from 15 players including India's Anirban Lahiri and defending champion Patton Kizzire, the latter's cause helped by the first consecutive eagles on the PGA Tour since June.

Eighteen players were within five shots of the lead.
