Kuchar builds 4-shot lead at Mex­ico event

The State (Sunday) - - Sports -

Matt Kuchar had an­other rough hole and enough birdies to atone for it Satur­day, post­ing a 6-un­der 65 to open a four-shot lead in the Mayakoba Golf Clas­sic in Playa Del Car­men, Mex­ico.

Kuchar hit a wild drive to the right into man­groves on the par-4 14th and had to get up-and­down to sal­vage a bo­gey. That was the only big mis­take for Kuchar, who is go­ing af­ter his first PGA Tour ti­tle in more than four years.

He saved par from just off the green at the 18th to fin­ish at 20-un­der 193, four shots ahead of Whee Kim, who had a 66.
