DORAL, Fla. (AP) -- Matt Kuchar birdied the 18th hole Friday to join an exclusive group -- one of only four players to beat par at Doral.
The Blue Monster gobbled up just about everyone else in raging wind at the Cadillac Championship.
Kuchar, Dustin Johnson, Hunter Mahan and Patrick Reed were the survivors to par going into the weekend. They were at 1-under 143. The conditions were so severe that only three players broke par in the second round, and no one shot in the 60s.
Tiger Woods did well to post a 73 and was only six shots behind.
Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy were among those at even par. The average score was 76 on the overhauled Trump National Doral, thanks to more than 100 balls that went into the water.
