GOLF

DORAL, Fla. (AP) - Matt Kuchar played out of the rough to tap-in range for birdie on the 18th hole for a 2-over 74 that allowed him to join an exclusive group at the Cadillac Championship - one of only four survivors to par.

The Blue Monster and a raging wind gobbled up just about everyone else.

Dustin Johnson bogeyed three of his last six holes for a 74. Patrick Reed made only two birdies in his round of 75. Hunter Mahan atoned for a triple bogey with a 4-iron into 5 feet for eagle on the eighth hole, giving him a 74. They joined Kuchar atop the leaderboard at 1-under 143.

Only three players broke par in the second round. No one shot in the 60s. The average score was a fraction under 76.

Tiger Woods hit three of the 113 balls that went into the water in the second round and scraped out a 73, thanks in part to a 90-foot birdie putt on the par-3 fourth hole. He was six off the pace with Phil Mickelson, who shot a 75.
