Kuchar and English in charge
Matt Kuchar and Harris English will take a four-shot lead into the final round of the Franklin Templeton Shootout after a brilliant 12-under-par 60 in the second day.
Having started Saturday’s better-ball format at the Tiburon Golf Club’s Course in Florida at eight-under-par, the pair produced the goods on the back nine.
They were just one under par after seven holes, but then made six consecutive birdies, an eagle and three more birdies with their 12 under just one shot away from the all-time record in the event’s better-ball format set by Americans John Daly and Frank Lickliter in 2001.
Their fireworks on the back nine left them with a healthy lead over Retief Goosen and Freddie Jacobson, who shot a 61 to lie at 16-under.
Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood (61) are another three shots back along with joint overnight leaders Charles Howell III and Justin Leonard.
Day one co-leaders and defending champions Kenny Perry and Sean O’Hair had a poor day as they are now in a tie for sixth with Rory Sabbatini and Scott Verplank after shooting a 69.
