Zalatoris takes lead at PGA Championship, Woods struggles to make the cut | NOW

Will Zalatoris took the lead in the PGA Championship standings on Friday (local time). The American took advantage of a lesser day from Rory Mcllroy, while Tiger Woods struggled to make the cut of the major tournament.

Zalatoris made five birdies and needed only 65 strokes to close out the second day. The only 25-year-old American goes into the third round with one stroke ahead of Chilean Mito Pereira (-9 at -8). This is followed by American Justin Thomas (-6).

His compatriot Bubba Watson impressed with a score of seven under par and rose no less than 52 places in the standings. The two-time winner of The Masters is now fourth, four strokes from Zalatoris.

Woods is recovering and can go into the weekend

Woods made the cut with great difficulty, meaning he can continue the PGA Championship. The fifteen-time major winner, who recently returned to the Masters after a serious car accident, improved his bad opening day with a score of one under par and is now tied for 53rd.

“I’ve won tournaments when I barely made the cut. They weren’t majors, but you never know what can happen over the weekend,” said Woods, who won the PGA Championship in 1999, 2000, 2006 and 2007. name wrote.

The second major tournament of the year lasts two days. Last year the victory went to Phil Mickelson, but he is not there this time. The American has been inactive for three months after making controversial statements about a new Saudi Arabia-funded tour early this year.
