Kuchar shares first-round Makayoba lead as wife caddies elsewhere

A bogey on 10th saw him fall to one-under, before he birdied 11th, 13th, 15th and 17th holes without dropping any more for a 66.

Kuchar, meanwhile, grabbed a share of the lead with a bogey-free, 7-under 64 as he looks to win on Tour for the first time since 2014. "But I had a good time at the office today as well".

Australian PGA Tour rookie Cameron Davis had a 72 on Saturday to be tied for 53rd at five under ahead of his Australian Open title defence while his countryman Jones slide to 71st after a 74 left him one under.

Three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, meanwhile, struggled to make an impression, hitting four birdies and four bogeys for an even-par 71. That made Ancer the first Mexican golfer to crack the top 100 in the world ranking, and he carried that to his native soil and kept moving in the right direction.

Kizzire made two eagles in a row on the front nine, holing out with a gap wedge on the par-4 sixth for his second.

But Masters runner-up and world number nine Rickie Fowler is still in the hunt after shooting a three-under par 68 on Friday to go into the weekend tied for 20th with 13 other players. He won the Fiji International with his dad caddying for him late in 2015, but struggled to contend this year and failed to reach the third FedEx Cup playoff event for the first time in almost a decade. Kuchar's wife was following along in the gallery and carried Johnson's bag the rest of the way.


"It's kind of nice to look back and know that I've won on every stage", said Hickcok, who was also a two-time victor on the Mackenzie Tour past year.

Kuchar and Johnson live at Sea Island on the Georgia coast.

India's Anirban Lahiri compiled a five-under 66 that put him in the mix at the halfway stage of the Mayakoba Golf Classic in Mexico. Going back to an old driver didn't help as he hit only six fairways, making it tough to score for anyone out of the rough.

"I was able to come back with a couple of birdies and I felt like I was in control".

"If you're not driving it well, this course is extremely hard", Kuchar said.
