The Fresno Bee - - Sports -

Matt Kuchar had a 7un­der 64 with a for­tu­nate bo­gey on his card to build a two-shot lead over bighit­ting rookie Cameron Champ on Fri­day in Mayakoba Golf Clas­sic.

Kuchar surged in Playa del Carmen, Mex­ico, 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 drop, chipped out and es­caped when he holed a 35-foot putt.

Champ played early and had a 62 with a bo­gey on his fi­nal hole. Kuchar was at 14-un­der 128. Jor­dan Spi­eth missed the cut in his fi­nal event of the year
