Best value team for the Zurich Classic

FINAL CUT: The cut is -6.

The PGA Tour has teed off the second round of the 2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans on Friday and it will take some low scores to get through to the weekend. The teams of Viktor Hovland/Kris Ventura and Brice Garnett/Scott Stallings opened the tournament with a first round 62. Everyone was under par with a four-way tie in the rear at one under heading into the second day.

The first half of the 80-team field is getting on the course, with the last set of tee times set for 3:14 p.m. ET. The second half of the field starts to tee off at 1:35 p.m. There’s a long way to go before we find out what the weekend field looks like for the Zurich Classic.
