Southern Hills Country Club, Tulsa, OK — May 20, 2022

Round two of the PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club saw low scores climb the leaderboard, familiar names struggle, and big-name players miss the cut. Will Zalatoris is the new leader as he shot a bogey-free round of 65 to go with his first-round score of 66 to sit atop the leaderboard at nine-under on the par 70 layout.

Mito Pereira sits in second place at eight-under-par, the golfer from Chile had a chance to tie for the lead but missed a seven-foot put on the final hole. Justin Thomas with back-to-back rounds of 67 sits in third at six-under.

Bubba Watson, with the best round of the day, shot 63 to move him from two-over-par to five-under and solidly in the mix for the weekend. Yesterday’s leader struggled to a one-over-par score of 71 dropping him into a tie for fifth with Davis Riley and Abraham Ancer at four-under.

Heading into the third round 22 players sit in red numbers, with eight more at even par.

Tiger Makes the Cut

Playing his second tournament of the year since returning from devastating injuries he suffered in a car crash, Tiger Woods worked his way through an up-and-down round. Two birdies on the final six holes brought him one-under-par for the day as he survived the cut by two strokes, tied for 53rd at three-over after two rounds of play.

Hideki Matsuyama, Collin Morikawa, Charl Schwartzel slid in just under the wire at four-over, to make it to the final rounds.

Notable Failures

Other not-so-fortunate included Dustin Johnson, who shot consecutive scores of 73 and missed the cut by two strokes. Master champion Scottie Scheffler ballooned to a five-over score of 75 after his 71 on Thursday and he won’t be playing this weekend. Sergio Garcia, John Daly, Patrick Cantlay, Zach Johnson, and Martin Kaymer are also headed home early.
