Kyle and Louis both carded -6 under par 66 in the second round of The Players, to top the leaderboard -9 under par.
Louis, has never won on the U.S Tour, but has confidence his putting;
“I’ve come close a few times, and I’ve felt I’ve played really well,”
“It’s nice being tied for the lead any tournament off two rounds.”
“I think it was more just giving myself that little bit more confidence of that I’m stroking it well and saw the line perfect and the speed perfect.”
“You know, you never know, that putt might be the one to do it for you in the championship. But I think it was more just making sure I hit a good putt and gave it a good effort.”
Kyle is going to stick to his game plan;
“You know, but it being the halfway point, you know, it’s a nice place to be.”
“It’s nice to kind of see a lot of the work kind of come together. But that being said, there’s a lot of golf left.”
“Still got to be really patient. Can’t get too far ahead of yourself. Yeah, we’ll just stick to the game plan we’ve had so far.”
