Day, Chappell, Hoffman tied at Harbour Town


Through two rounds at Harbour Town, a familiar name shares the lead heading into the weekend. Here's where things stand at the RBC Heritage.

Leaderboard: Jason Day (-6), Kevin Chappell (-6), Charley Hoffman (-6), Luke Donald (-5), Russell Knox (-5)

What It means: World No. 1 Day is looking for his seventh win in his last 15 starts dating back to his triumph at last year's Canadian Open. Day shares the lead at Harbour Town thanks to four birdies and two bogeys on a blustery and cool day in the Lowcountry. He will be paired with a familiar foe in Chappell. Day beat Chappell by a stroke at Bay Hill in March, and the sixth-year pro is still looking for his first win. Hoffman joined the lead late in the day with a birdie on the par-4 eighth, his 17th hole of the day.

Round of the day: There weren't too many low rounds on the classic Pete Dye course, but Knox recorded a solid 6-under 65. He made eight birdies against two bogeys, including four birdies on the back nine.

Biggest disappointment: While the world's No. 1 player shares the lead, plenty of other big names won't be around for the weekend. Paul Casey, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Graeme McDowell and Brandt Snedeker all missed the cut.

Main storyline heading Into Saturday: All eyes will be on Day, but there are some notable names not too far behind. Donald is only one back as he looks to win for the first time since 2012. Harbour Town seems like the perfect course for him to break through. He has five career top-3 finishes but no victories at the Heritage. Kuchar, the 2013 champion, is only two back. And Bryson DeChambeau, making his pro debut, sits only three strokes behind the leaders.

Shot of the day: Kyle Stanley holed this pitch shot from way off the 18th green to finish at even par and easily make the cut.

Quote of the Day: "I'm just out here trying to win some championships." – DeChambeau
