Oosthuizen still in 10th after round 2 of Tour Championship

Louis Oosthuizen remained in a share of 10th on Friday in the second round of the PGA Tour’s Tour championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia with a three-under-par 67.

With the complex scoring system involved in the tournament – the leading player in the FedEx Cup to that point started the tournament at 10-under – Oosthuizen was still in a share of 10th at eight-under after starting off at three-under. He is now nine behind the lead held by last week’s winner, Patrick Cantlay, who had a four-under 66 to move to 17-under. He’s one ahead of Jahn Rahm who made some more headway on the gap between himself and the lead with his second consecutive five-under taking him to 16-under.

Oosthuizen had five birdies and two bogeys in his round, picking up shots on two, four, five, 12 and 18, and dropping shots on eight and 17.

Erik van Rooyen’s brilliant recent run seemed to have stalled in his second round, as he slipped to last place in the 30-man field after a three-over-par 73 had him at two-over for the tournament after 36 holes.
