Round 2 Review: Only three Cowboys make the cut in a flooded field

  • Updated
Viktor Hovland

All seven Cowboys were affected by two rain delays during the second round of the World Charity, but only three will see action on the weekend.

Play was stopped twice over the round due to inclement weather around Muirfield Village Golf Club. Round two was suspended due to darkness with only a few players left on the course including Kevin Tway.

Tway will have to finish his second round on Saturday, but is currently not within the cut line of 1-under. Tway only has one hole left to play. Tway began the day at even par, but could never recover from an early double-bogey and sits at 3-over.

Bo Van Pelt had a rough tournament this week. He withdrew from the event during the second rain delay and did not cite a reason for the departure. He was 5-over.

After an incredible runner-up finish last week Mathew Wolff will not play on the weekend after shooting a second round 5-over 77.

Charles Howell III had to wait through both rain delays to finally tee off. He just couldn’t gain momentum and score. He shot a 2-over 74 to finish his tournament at 1-over.

Rickie Fowler again began hot with two birdies in his first three holes. A double-bogey late in his round could have derailed him, but he bounced back. Fowler shot a 3-under 69 to sit in a tie for 29th.

Talor Gooch had six birdies in his front nine to quickly jump in contention, but a slow second nine and a nuclear round from the leaders have put him eight shots back. He is tied for 15th at 5-under par and comfortably inside the cut line.

Viktor Hovland was once again the low Cowboy for the day. He entered the day at 3-under and started right where he left off. He shot a 5-under 67 in round two. The highlight of the round came when Hovland put his drive four feet from the hole on the par four 14th. Hovland is five shots back from the lead heading into moving day.

The lowest score for the entire field came from Kevin Streelman who shot an 8-under 64 to move in a tie for second at 10-under.

Former Stanford golfer Colin Morikawa continues to lead at 13-under after shooting a 67 in round two.
