Karlsson, Stadler share lead
Robert Karlsson and Kevin Stadler shared the clubhouse lead at 12-under when bad light stopped play during the second round of the OHL Classic.
After Thursday’s first round couldn’t be finished on the day, Karlsson had to play 36 holes on Friday and carded an eight-under par 63 in the first, before closing with a 67 during his second round at the Mayakoba Resort’s El Camaleon course.
“I hit some good iron shots and knocked in some putts,” Karlsson said.
“I mean, I gave myself a whole bunch of chances and I took them, so it was great.
“I feel pretty happy the way I’m going.
“Obviously, it’s very wet.
“It’s unbelievable that we’re playing at all. The amount of rain that’s been here the last few days, the course is in really great condition.”
Stadler managed a 67 and a 63 during his two rounds and finished his second round 25 minutes before play was called off for the day having made five birdies in his last seven holes.
“I didn’t really feel like waking up at 4 again tomorrow morning,” Stadler said.
“Nice to be completely done with both rounds today and just kind of get a little bit of rest tonight.”
“It played about as easy as it can play for us today.
“With it being as soft as it is, the fairways played much wider than they typically play. No breeze today, so we kind of got let off the hook.”
Tied for second place on nine-under are Rory Sabbatini and Chris Stroud. When play was called off Sabbatini had one hole left to play and Stroud three.
At eight-under are Ryan Moore, Jhonattan Vegas, Pat Perez and Jay McLuen.
Moore (67) and Vegas (68) finished their rounds, but Perez and McLuen both had four holes still to play.
