The South African golfer handed over a 66 (-4) card to the Centurion Club, allowing him to defend the lead he had built up after one round. His compatriot Hennie du Plessis (68) is his closest pursuer, three strokes behind.

Only six players remain under par after 36 pennants, including Dustin Johnson (-1).

The day didn't go so smoothly for other ex-PGA Tour golfers. Phil Mickelson (4) tied for 26th after playing 75, while Lee Westwood (6) turned in a 71 on Friday, good for 36th.

The purse awarded to the winner of the tournament, worth a staggering $4 million, is greater than that of any tournament on the PGA Tour.

Recall that the LIV Golf circuit is financed by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia and founded by former player Greg Norman. The PGA announced on Thursday that it was suspending its 17 golfers who joined.
