Hovland advances in Texas with bogey free rounds
Norwegian golfer Viktor Hovland found the big game in the second round of the PGA tournament in Texas on Friday. He made a round of five bogey free strokes under par.
After a slightly sluggish start on Thursday at one stroke under par, the Norwegian did well on Friday. With five birdies, he was able to record 65 rounds.
That puts him in 7th place currently dealt with six strokes under par. There were three battles with three Americans Scott Stallings, Beau Hossler and Scottie Scheffler sharing the lead.
Hovland started the second round on the tenth hole of the course, and got three pairs before he played two birdies in a row after that. The third birdie occurred on the second hole of the course.
On the 13th hole (fifth of the course) he had to fight for par, but from more than two meters he dropped a crucial putt and kept four strokes under par. It will pay off well when he manages to make a new birdie on the next hole.
On the next hole he had to rediscover his best nipple skills, as he had par a little over four yards after ending up in the bunker. Once again, the Norwegian showed strength and dropped another decisive putt.
On the last hole of the day, he made the final birdie and positioned himself well ahead of the weekend’s finals.
