With back to back rounds of -7 under 64 Matt sits on top of Mayakoba Golf Classic leaderboard at the half-way stage with his -14 under total.

After a very steady start, carding five birdies in row Matt hit his tee shot on the 12th so far right he hit a provisional in case it was out of bounds. He found the ball, had to take a drop, chipped out and the got on the green for four. A 35 foot bogey putt found the bottom of the cup, and he never looked back from that moment, finishing the day with a two shot advantage over the field.

“That was great, I knew I had a par five following it, and I figured I was probably going to make double there and birdie on the next.”

“I ended up making bogey there and par on the par five 13th, so still felt like I was very much in control.”

“Yesterday was kind of a bogey-free day and just easy, and everything else today was about the same.”

“I just had that one challenging hole.”

 PGA TOUR rookie Cameron Champ, USA, shot a -9 under par 62 to claim second place at -12 under. He is credited with being one of the longest hitters on Tour, but said he still needs to make those putts;

“It’s not a bomber’s course, you have to place it off the tee, and some holes the rough is very thick and you’ve just got to whack it out.”

“This course I feel like is very suitable for everyone. Just to be able to place my ball right in the fairways and on the greens and make the putts when I needed is great.”

There are seven players sharing third place at -11 under par, which includes  defending champion Patton Kizzire, past Mayakoba champion Brian Gay.

Missing the cut, which was set at -4 under was Jordan Spieth and another Major winner Zach Johnson.
