Breakdown of the ranking of Workday Charity Open 2020: Round 2 suspended with Collin Morikawa remaining ahead


The second round of the Workday 2020 Charity Open was suspended Friday at 8:50 p.m. ET, but everything that needed to be seen was seen earlier today as Collin Morikawa saved his 65 with a 66 to take a big advance in the weekend. .Morikawa was brilliant early as two different weather delays pushed the game deep into the evening as two dozen golfers were still on the course and will resume their rounds Saturday morning at 9 a.m. , which is 13 cents after 36 holes of play. Let’s take a closer look at his round and those chasing him as we head for the weekend.

1. Collin Morikawa (-13) – Look, this thing is over. It’s an envelope. Morikawa is definitely a star – maybe even a superstar – and he just recorded the lowest score on Thursday and the second lowest Friday at Muirfield Village. He turns off the lights, and although it goes down, the ball will not be hit. It will take two more rounds to formalize it, but Morikawa will win the Workday 2020 Charity Open for the second victory of his career and his star will take off for the next few years (remind me of all that when Zach Johnson defeated him on Sunday evening).

T2. Justin Thomas, Kevin Streelman (-10) – Thomas’ goal at the end of the day was surely to qualify Saturday for Morikawa (which would have been an extravagance of absolute ball striking), but he failed to do so when Streelman entered the house before him . However, Thomas was brilliant since he played 36 holes of golf without a bogey and was seventh on the field from tee to green. A Morikawa-Thomas shootout over the weekend would be an absolute pleasure.

T4. Sam Burns, Hideki Matsuyama (-9) – Speaking of a few imperfections, Matsuyama only has one on his card all week. Unfortunately for him, it was a double bogey in turn 1 that prevented him from playing in this final pairing with Morikawa. Man, Morikawa, Matsuyama and Thomas is a trio of perhaps three of the top five iron players in the world.

T6. Viktor Hovland, Rory Sabbatini (-8) – What was the quality of this Hovland route on the 14 par-4 for Eagle? I mean, it’s ridiculous and it makes things so easy. Hovland shot 63 on the first nine on the course and 73 on the last nine. Keep that in mind on Saturday.

T8. Ian Poulter, Chase Seiffert (-7) and T10. Patrick Reed, Matt Kuchar, Nick Taylor, Louis Oosthuizen, Richy Werenski (-6) – It is unusual for Reed to be in the top 10 of the green tee and yet so far from the head. His short game has not been similar to Reed’s so far, as he is close to 100th in putting and fairly poor (for him) around the greens as well. This is actually good news if you are looking for Reed to make noise this weekend because the short game will rebound and could open on Saturday as it closed on Friday (with a 32 out of the first nine on the course) .

T29. Rickie Fowler (-3) – Nice day for Fowler Friday when he was 3 years old and got his second straight cut. His putter (like Mickelson’s below) was pretty poor for him, which is actually a good thing as it means his batter is coming back. When I watched it in Round 2, there were a few swings that resulted in really awful approaches, but overall, the swing adjustments seem to have clicked a bit. It will take more than two events to determine this, but Fowler may be on an upward trajectory for the rest of 2020.

T45. Phil Mickelson (-2) – Mickelson’s putting has been incredible this week, and not in a good way. He has only made 88 feet of putts so far and only three putts over 6 feet through his first 36 holes. The frustrating part for him must be that he hits really well and doesn’t score at all. He won’t win, but he can definitely rank in the top 10 this weekend if the putter bounces.
