Matt Kuchar's wife fills in as caddie for Zach Johnson

Champ victor at the Sanderson Farms Championship in MS, was in full control as he missed only two fairways for the second straight day.

Matt Kuchar grabbed a two-shot lead at the halfway stage of the Mayakoba Golf Classic, as Jordan Spieth missed the cut in Mexico.

"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.

Kuchar, who has gone more than four years since his last victory on the PGA Tour, missed only two fairways at El Camaleon and was bogey-free for his lowest opening round since a 64 in the 2017 Phoenix Open.

Kuchar said accurate driving had been the key to his lowest opening score in almost two years.

Kuchar, owner of seven tour titles but seeking his first since the 2014 RBC Heritage, was two strokes clear of Cameron Champ, who fired a nine-under par 62 to set an early target on 130.

HAINAN ISLAND, China (AP) - Gaby Lopez shot a hole-in-one for a 6-under 66 on her 25th birthday and a one-stroke lead over Ariya Jutanugarn after the third round of the Blue Bay LPGA tournament on Friday.

Anthony, who is in his 16th season, has averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds in 10 games with two starts this season. It's unfair that there's all this speculation on just one player.

"I didn't talk too much to Damon, but you could tell it was heat fatigue, heat exhaustion", Kuchar later told reporters. "If you're driving it well, you can make some birdies, which I was able to do today".

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.

Eighteen players are within five shots of the lead.

Danny Lee remains tied for third going into the last round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

"So 2018 has not been my best year, has not been a highlight for me, been a disappointing year", Kuchar said. The 23-year-old hits it a mile and won the Sanderson Farms Championship two weeks ago in just his second start as a card-carrying Tour member.

Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk had a 66 and was at 13-under 200.
