PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico – American world No. 10 Rickie Fowler is at 10-under par in second-round action Friday at a PGA Tour event in this southeastern Mexican resort city, just one shot back of countryman Patrick Rodgers, the tournament leader.
Fowler, who shot a 6-under 65 in Thursday action at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, was 4-under through 15 holes in second-round play Friday at the El Camaleon Golf Club thanks to birdies on the par-4 third and ninth holes, the par-5 fifth and 13th holes and the par-3 10th.
He had gone 31 straight holes without a bogey but finally gave a stroke back to the field on Friday with a five on the par-4 14th.
Fowler briefly had the lead before that slip-up, but he has been leapfrogged by Rodgers, who is at 11-under thanks to shooting a bogey-free 7-under through 15 holes of his second round.
Another American, Patton Kizzire, who cooled off on Friday after torching the El Camaleon Golf Club on Thursday with a 9-under 62, is tied with Fowler at 10-under for the tournament.
Kizzire shot 1-under in an up-and-down second-round, making up for a bogey on the par-4 12th and a double-bogey on the par-4 first with four birdies, including three in a row on the third, fourth and fifth holes.
