After a brief suspension on Friday, Collin Morikawa and Scottie Scheffler look to chase after the current Players Championship leads, Adam Svensson and Christiaan Bezuidenhout.

The two young golf stars hover just two or three points below the Championships’ current international leads, vying for a takeover at the end of the second round.

While Bezuidenhout and Svensson are tied at eight under, Morikawa and Scheffler are catching up with -6 and -5, respectively.

Morikawa and Scheffler still have more holes to fill due to the Championships’ unexpected suspension, sparked by a sudden change in weather.

Since his winning debut in the 2020 PGA Championship and 2021 Open Championship, Morikawa has maintained his image of skill and poise in golf.

The 26-year-old began the 2023 Players Championship with a stunning seven under 65 last Thursday, falling by a single stroke behind Chad Ramey’s eight under 64.

Scheffler also remains a strong candidate for the Championships. He has won the World Golf Championship, Masters and Players Championship previously, though his next challenge appears to be a 16-foot eagle putt.

Bezuidenhout and Svensson face off as the championships’ current leads, with under eight in their titles. The two international golfers have a wealth of experience, with Svensson winning the RSM Classic last year and Bezuidenhout winning the DP World Tour three times.

Morikawa is tied with Ben Griffin and Min Woo Lee for second place, all earning under six in their titles.

In the third place, Scheffler is tied with Will Gordon and Taylor Pendrith, claiming under five in their titles. While Scheffler remains a favorite in this tier, Pendrith is also a strong contender, having won the Canadian PGA Tour twice in 2019.

Meanwhile, Players Championship 2019 winner Rory McIlroy is struggling to advance to the next round.

Having added another two strokes on Friday to his already concerning four-over, he will have to climb up the ranks in his next eight holes to avoid being cut out of the game this weekend.
