There is still a two-way tie for the lead after the second round of the Zurich Classic golf tournament in New Orleans.

The two-man teams played alternate shots or foursomes in the second round and joint first-round leaders, Viktor Hovland and Kris Ventura of Norway, have kept their noses in front.

The pair carded a three-under-par 69 at the TPC Louisiana for a two-round total of 131 – 13-under-par.

The two Norwegians were joined at the top of the leaderboard by Americans, Cameron Champ and Tony Finau, who went round in 68 and they have a two-stroke lead over two pairings.

South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel are in a tie for fifth, three strokes behind the leaders.

The teams will again play the better ball format in this evening’s third round.
