PGA Tour: FedExCup Playoffs: TOUR Championship, day two. Dustin Johnson held on to the top spot

On the second day of the TOUR Championship tournament, Dustin Johnson defied the Golden rule of the East Lake field, which dictates that it is mandatory to go to the local fairways. Johnson visited only two fairways and was forced to constantly fight a” difficult ” rough, which did not prevent him from making four birdies (Dustin rolled a couple of long putts and executed a magnificent chip-in on the eighth hole). However, there was a place for four bogeys in the world Ranking leader’s score card, and he played a round of Pars, staying at the top of the standings.

Jon Rahm, who shared the lead with Johnson at the start of the day, initially played with the tee much more confidently and managed to get to the minus fourteen mark, but from the middle of the round, the Spaniard also began to have problems. Rahm made a triple putt, broke several drives (sinking one ball) and finished the day with a score of 74 (+4), falling back to fifth place. There are Also Tyrrell Hatton and Collin Morikawa, who made six birdies against the only bogey. Rory McIlroy failed to make it into this group, making an unfortunate mistake on the final hole.

The role of the main pursuer was taken over By Sungjae Im (Sungjae Im) with six cons who made the best score of the day and got close to Johnson. For comparison, Im in the second round went to ten fairways out of fourteen, providing a comfortable performance and a lot of good opportunities.

Xander Schauffele also had a great day, winning back five cons from the local arena. Recall that three years ago in his debut season Shoffley already won on the field of East Lake, and the last draw he finished in second place. Zonder played fourteen rounds in the local arena and performed better than par in each of them. By the middle of the tournament, Shoffley is third, one stroke ahead of Justin Thomas, who played with a minimal plus.
