Woodland on Top at OHL Classic at Mayakoba

Through two rounds at El Camaleon Golf Club in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, Gary Woodland is atop the OHL Classic leaderboard with a total of 13-under-par. Woodland started off slow, going 1-over through three holes of his first round, but since then has been lights out. He would birdie the fourth hole with a 21-footer, and then refused to look back, carding 12 birdies and an eagle to just that early bogey. Woodland is set to tee off with Webb Simpson and Scott Piercy at 11:10 a.m. Eastern Time.

Trailing behind Woodland by a stroke is Webb Simpson at 12-under. Simpson, who once finished second in the FedEx Cup, has had a slow descent from grace, continuously finishing worse year after year.  But a win this weekend could have the potential to flip the script for him.

Simpson, like Woodland, has been immaculate, logging 12 birdies and zero bogeys through two rounds. One thing Simpson has been actively doing is varying his golf swing, which is what works for some people.

Behind the third place Scott Piercy, 11-under, is a logjam of competitors at 9-under. One of which is the 19th ranked player in the world, Russell Knox. Knox has finished inside the top-10 in his last two starts and in poised to make a run at a third this weekend. However, Knox got off to a rocky start in his second round by bogeying the first two holes, but in the spirit of making things interesting, he hauled off and birdied five straight after that.

Knox will be teeing off with Adam Hadwin and Abraham Ancer at 10:50 a.m. Eastern Time, with television coverage of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba starting at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the Golf Channel.
Until then, I’ll leave you with a chuckle.
