Matt Kuchar is the absolute leader after the second round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

The American, who went through the day with compatriots Kramer Hickok and Dominic Bozzelli, hit a seven under 64 and ended Friday at 14 under with a lead of two shots on the big-hitting rookie Cameron Champ.

Kuchar started with five straight birds on the front nine. He led with one shot when his tee-shot landed right and landed in bushes near rocks. He took a penalty drop in a precarious spot and managed to escape with a bogey after a chip and sensational 35-foot putt.

Champ, who went for his second victory this season, had a bogey at the 18th hole to finish with a round of 62.

Anirban Lahiri scored seven birds on the way to a five under 66, brought him on 11-under for the tournament and tied for third place along with six other players on the way to the weekend.

The triple big winner Jordan Spieth missed the cut in his last event of the year. The American played in Mexico through an appointment with the PGA Tour after he was not eligible for the Tour Championship and therefore did not play the required 25 games.
