Rahm charges to lead
JON Rahm and Henrik Stenson are the joint leaders with a one-shot lead after the second round of the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.
After a disappointing opening round of 72, Rahm hit nine birdies in the best round of the day to move to 10-under.
“I missed one fairway, I believe (and) that’s only because they put a patch of rough in the middle of the fairway on four,” the Spaniard said.
“Didn’t seem like much could go wrong. If I’m hitting really solid drives and have short irons in, it’s hard not to be aggressive.”
Sweden’s Stenson followed up an opening round of 68 with a 66 that included seven birdies and a bogey.
“Putting has been really solid these first couple of days. Short game as well. A lot of good up-and-downs,” he said.
Overnight leaders Patrick Reed and Patrick Cantlay had mixed fortunes on day two.
Cantlay is a shot behind the European pair after signing for a 70, while Reed dropped down the leaderboard following a round of 77 that included three bogeys and a double-bogey.
Australia’s Jason Day shot an even-par round to be one under, a stroke behind Tiger Woods (69).
