The format may be weird, but the leaderboard is not. After 36 holes of play at the 2019 Tour Championship, Brooks Koepka (heard of him?) leads Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas by one stroke. That's nine combined major championships duking it out for a $15 million first prize at East Lake Golf Club outside of Atlanta. Not a bad way to spend your weekend. Let's take a look at everything that happened in Round 2 of this year's Tour Championship.
First place -- Brooks Koepka (-13): Other than Chez Reavie (we'll get to him), nobody scored better than Koepka on Friday. He's made just three bogeys in his first two rounds and ran it all the way to 13 under after his eighth hole on Friday before coasting home to finish at that same mark. What's he doing well so far? Well, everything. He's sixth from tee to green and third in putting. He has elite company, but nobody's betting against Koepka when he's in this position (he's currently +150 to win with a one-stroke lead).
