Sungjae Im leads at The American Express
After a strong four-under par opening round at the Nicklaus Tournament Course, Im ($9,900) topped that effort, shooting seven under at the Stadium Course on Friday. He didn’t card a single bogey in the second round and Im’s score on Friday was tied for the best of the day at The American Express. Abraham Ancer ($9,100) also shot seven under today and is only one stroke behind Im heading into the weekend. Regardless of the fact he missed the cut last week at the Sony Open, Ancer is the second-highest owned golfer in this week’s $600K Approach Shot contest on DraftKings. He joins a crowded list of players at 10 strokes under par, including Brandon Hagy ($6,200), Tony Finau ($10,500), Si Woo Kim ($8,200) and Nick Taylor ($7,000). — Alex Hunter
Phil Mickelson shoots 18 pars Friday at The American Express
Mickelson ($8,800) had a noteworthy round Friday at the American Express. His final scoreline wasn’t particularly impressive — he shot an even-par 72 — but the way that he got there was unprecedented for him. He shot 18 consecutive pars for the first time in his career, despite the fact that this was his 2,201st round as a professional. Unfortunately, Mickelson’s score of even par kept him at 2-over-par for the tournament, which was not good enough to make the cut. Others who missed the cut include Scottie Scheffler ($9,500), Sepp Straka ($7,400), Sam Burns ($8,300) and Patrick Reed ($10,200), all of whom carried top-five ownership across DraftKings contests. That’s going to hurt a ton of lineups heading into the weekend. — Matt LaMarca
