Zach Johnson leads by three strokes after two rounds at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.  Z. Johnson fired a seven-under 66 for a two-round total of 13-under par.

Defending champion Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar, and Jordan Spieth are in second place at 10-under par.  D. Johnson matched Z. Johnson with a brilliant seven-under 66 in the second round.  Kuchar shot his second consecutive five-under 68, and Spieth registered an uneventful three-under 70.

Webb Simpson and Michael Thompson round out the top five at nine-under par.

Zach Johnson followed up his roller coaster first round with a mistake-free 66. This is Z. Johnson’s second career outright 36 hole lead, according to Justin Ray of ESPN.

 

Leads are never safe on the PGA Tour, especially when Zach Johnson is in striking distance.  The dude is a closer, and he should be the favorite heading into the final two rounds.  However, there are good players a few strokes back of Johnson, so expect an exciting finish.

The Plantation Course at Kapalua plays to a par-73 for those out there wondering. Three par-3s and four par-fives is an unusual layout, but exciting nonetheless.
