Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

PLAYA DEL CAR­MEN, MEX­ICO >> Matt Kuchar had a 7-un­der 64 with a for­tu­nate bo­gey on his card to build a twoshot lead over big-hit­ting rookie Cameron Champ on Fri­day in Mayakoba Golf Clas­sic.

Kuchar surged into the mix with five straight birdies on the front nine. He was lead­ing by one when his tee shot sailed well to right un­der bushes near a bed of rocks. He took a penalty drop in a pre­car­i­ous spot, chipped out into the rough and es­caped with no more worse than bo­gey when he holed a 35-foot putt.

Jor­dan Spieth missed the cut in his fi­nal event of the year. PHOENIX >> Paul Goy­dos birdied the par-5 18th for a 6-un­der 65 and a on­e­stroke lead in the PGA Tour Cham­pi­ons’ sea­son-end­ing Charles Sch­wab Cup Cham­pi­onship. Tied for the first-round lead with Tim Petro­vic af­ter a 63, SUN CITY, SOUTH AFRICA >> Ser­gio Garcia only just held onto his lead as Louis Oosthuizen’s sec­ond-round charge took him to within a shot of the Spaniard at the Ned­bank Golf Chal­lenge on Fri­day.
