On the second day of activities at ’s third stop, at the Bedminster course in New Jersey, tricolor golfer Carlos Ortiz clings to the top5 of the table.

After a second place in Portland – in what was his debut in the controversial golf tour – the Mexican returned to the competition with his sights set on victory and in Bedminster he is in a position now that he is four strokes behind the provisional leader: Swedish Henrik Stenson.

After a day of one under par, for a cumulative 137 shots, with five down, Carlos is in third place in the table along with Americans Patrick Reed and Taylor Gooch.

Ortiz is one stroke away from former PGA world number one, American Dustin Johnson, second in the table. While in sixth position is the Thai Phachara Khongwatmai, the British Lee Westwood and the American Turk Pettit.

On the other hand, the Mexican Abraham Ancer had a very complicated day, because after having finished the first day par, after the second round at 18 holes he experienced problems to remain stable and signed a day of 7 shots above par.

The Turk is in position 44 in the table after a day full of ups and downs in which he only made a single birdie.

Phil Mickelson also had difficulties to dominate the grass and with a two over par on this second day he maintains a card of +6.

Tomorrow it will close with the competition in the field that belongs to the former president of the United States, Donald Trump, and where a juicy bag will be distributed.
