NAPLES, Fla. (AP) Harris English and Matt Kuchar shot a 6-under 66 in windy modified alternate shot play Friday to take the second-round lead in the Franklin Templeton Shootout.
English and Kuchar were at 21 under at Tiburon after opening with a 57 on Thursday in the scramble round. They won in 2013 in their first start together and finished second the last two years.
"Alternate shot's always a tricky format. If you would have told us 6 under bogey-free in today's conditions, we'd take that straightaway," Kuchar said. "I'd be surprised if another group was bogey-free today. It was good golf. I don't remember a hole being nervous that we might walk away with a bogey. Every hole we kind of had a chance and it was a good, fun round of golf."
