Valhalla Golf Club, Louisville, KY — May 17, 2024

Xander Schauffele’s run of bogey-free golf ended when he bogeyed the par-three 11th hole during the second round of the 2024 PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club. However, four birdies in his first 10 holes and pars the remainder of the way were enough to keep him atop the leaderboard after day two.

Schauffele’s score of 12 under par was one stroke better than Collin Morikawa’s. Who’s round featured seven birdies, including five in a row, paired with a single bogey to shoot 65 for a total of 11 under heading into the weekend.

Sahith Theegala, at 10 under par, has the top three players starting Saturday separated by just two strokes.

The golfer making the most noise, and not necessarily all of it on the course, was Scottie Scheffler. After a tragic accident early Friday morning where a worker at the tournament was hit by a bus and died, Scheffler was arriving at the golf club. According to his version of the story, he was trying to follow police directions when an incident resulted in Scheffler’s arrest. Here is the Golf Channel’s report on what occurred.

The PGA rescheduled Scheffler’s tee time, and he returned to play his round after being booked at a Louisville police station. Seemingly unfazed, Scheffler shot a 66 and is in a group of four golfers, including Bryson DeChambeau, tied for fourth at nine under par.

Tony Finau, Viktor Hovland, Brooks Koepka, and Hideki Matsuyama are all within five strokes of the lead heading to moving day.

Play was suspended by darkness with 18 players still on the course.

The cut is expected to fall at even par. John Rahm needs that number to move as he is currently even for the tournament and facing the probability of spending the weekend at home.

Tiger Woods shot a 77 for a two-day total of seven over par and won’t make the cut.

Round Two highlights and the two-day leaderboard follow.
