Hunter Mahan leading after second round of Cadillac Championship

Hunter Mahan is leading the second of the world golf championships, The Cadillac Championship which is taking place in Doral in Florida. With Mahan at nine under par overall, he is being chased by the world number one player right behind him. German golfer, Martin Kaymer, is currently at second place at eight under par overall.

The American Mahan posted a one under par 71 in the second round and posted a decent 64 in the first round. “Half the tournament is already over,” said Mahan. “There’s a long way to go. It’s just weird how sometimes you have good starts and poor finishes, and poor starts and good finishes. Everything’s good right now, I just have to trust it.”

Mahan’s performance in the first round was comparatively better. The player made nine birdies and just one bogey in the opening round.  Making four consecutive birdies from the 10th till the 13th hole, Hunter Mahan set the course on fire on Thursday.

In the second round, the player made birdie on the sixth hole, followed by two more birdies on the 10th and 12th. The two bogeys on the fourteenth and sixteenth hole hence decreased Mahan’s lead. Going into the third round with just a one shot lead, Mahan needs to be very careful as very skilled players are breathing down his neck.

The recent world number one, Kaymer, smooth sailed through the second round. Even though the 2010 PGA Championship winner didn’t make any bogeys in the second round, the player didn’t really give himself a chance for many birdies. Martin Kaymer made two birdies on the eight and the seventeenth hole in the second round.

At third place is the Italian player Francesco Molinari. Making 68 in both the opening and the second round, Molinari is in a good position. The former world number one Tiger Woods posted a two-under 70 in the first round and 74 in the second round has landed the player at total of even par.  Tied with Woods at even par are many great players like Phil Mickelson and the new world number two, Lee Westwood. Being all the way down to a tie for 34th, all these players need to work extra hard to make it to the top of the leader board.
