Zack Sucher says he is looking forward to the next 36 holes after opening up a two-shot lead at the Travelers Championship. American Sucher, who has been sidelined for more than a year after undergoing surgery to repair two ligaments in his knee and a tendon in one ankle, followed up his opening round of 64 with a five-under-par 65.
The world number 505 is two shots clear at the halfway stage of the tournament and is feeling confident heading into the weekend as he bids to break his PGA Tour duck. “Absolutely, it feels great,” 32-year-old Sucher was quoted as saying golf365.com.

“A lot of work to be done, but right now it’s feeling great. I just feel a lot better in my game right now.
