Three teams in the hunt at QBE shootout
Gary Woodland and Charley Hoffman are at the top of a congested leaderboard after the second round of the QBE shootout in Naples, Florida.
The American duo combined in the modified alternate-shot play to card an eight under 64 around Tiburon Golf Club on Saturday. That took Woodland and Hoffman to 19 under for the event, tied with Graeme McDowell/Emiliano Grillo and Brian Harmon/Patton Kizzire.
