A day after Wolff tied the joint-lowest score in LIV’s history (61), Bryson DeChambeau matched it and climbed up the standings into a tie for second at 11-under. The major champion is tied with Talor Gooch and Richard Bland.

For the team standings, Torque GC consisting of Puig, Joaquin Niemann, Mito Pereira and Sebastian Munoz sit in first place, four strokes clear of Stingers GC.

Highlights from Round Two

The section below showcases the key moments and videos from the second round.

Bryson DeChambeau shoots career low on LIV

DeChambeau’s bogey-free round of 61 featured nine birdies, including three in a row from holes 10-12 and two closing birdies on 17 and 18.

The 29-year-old has enjoyed a career resurgence this season after struggling last year and for the first half of 2023. DeChambeau has earned three top 10s in his last four starts, including a solo second in Andalucia.

The Clovis, California native is trying to win for the first time since the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2021.

Talor Gooch attempts to make history again

The 31-year-old became the first player to win three events on the LIV Tour by claiming LIV Adelaide, LIV Singapore and LIV Andalucia in 2023. What’s even more mind-boggling is his three triumphs came over a period of five starts from late April to the start of July.

After posting a five-under 65 on Friday, the Oklahoma product bettered his score by a stroke with Saturday’s round of 64. Should Gooch win Sunday, he’d become the first player to win four LIV events.

Matthew Wolff and David Puig aim for first triumph

After a rough start to the year, Wolff has the chance to win for the first time since the 2019 3M Open (PGA Tour event) and go wire-to-wire after holding the 36-hole lead.

Puig, who enjoyed an excellent career at Arizona State, has also struggled for most of the campaign but can build on his tie for fifth at Andalucia with a win in West Virginia.

The Torque GC team member carded a 5-under 65 (six birdies, 11 pars and a bogey) to earn a share of the lead for the first time in his LIV career.
