Mitchell keeps foot down and builds 5-shot lead in CJ Cup
CJ Cup Golf Keith Mitchell prepares to putt on the eighth hole during the second round of the CJ Cup golf tournament at the Summit Club in Las Vegas, Friday, Oct. 15, 2021. Mitchell is providing McIlroy and everyone else with plenty of more fodder through two rounds of the CJ Cup at Summit. Mitchell was at 18-under 126, breaking by five shots his best 36-hole score on tour. His second shot banged into the middle of the spin and settled a few inches away. He thought back to the Wells Fargo Championship in May, when he played the final round with Mitchell, trailing by two shots.wftv.com

(AP Photo/David Becker) (David Becker)LAS VEGAS — (AP) — Robert Streb went from making putts to wondering if he would ever miss Thursday in the CJ Cup at Summit. A world-class field lit up a very pretty and mostly defenseless golf course overlooking the Las Vegas Strip. Such scoring in ideal conditions was what players were expecting on this Tom Fazio desert course, and Streb wasted little time proving it. This is the second straight year the CJ Cup has moved from South Korea to Las Vegas because of the pandemic.wftv.com
Jones survives a challenging day, takes 3-shot lead at Honda
“I'm happy to go low with the ball flight and I'm probably a little more conservative when the wind is up," Jones said. That’s when his woes started, and what became a nine-shot turnaround between he and Jones began. Jones grabbed a share of the lead with a birdie at the par-4 14th. And when Wise made bogey at the par-3 15th, Jones was the outright leader again. “Just keep doing what I'm doing," Jones said.
