Kuchar’s wife to the res­cue

The Nation - - SPORT -

US vet­eran Matt Kuchar, seek­ing his first US PGA Tour win since 2014, fired a seven-un­der par 64 on Fri­day (Thai­land time) to lead the Mayakoba Clas­sic in Mex­ico with Kramer Hick­ock and Do­minic Bozzelli. His wife was also un­ex­pect­edly called into ac­tion.

Kuchar missed just two of 14 fair­ways on his way to his low­est open­ing round on tour since a 64 in Phoenix last year.

He took along his fam­ily to watch and it paid off in sur­prise fash­ion when his wife, Sybi, stepped in for play­ing part­ner Zach John­son’s ail­ing cad­die af­ter nine holes. Kuchar him­self had a lo­cal cad­die on his bag.
