SUN CITY, South Africa — Max Homa continues to hold a share of the lead at the Nedbank Golf Challenge after shooting a impressive 4-under 68 in the second round on Friday, with Matthieu Pavon joining him atop the leaderboard.

Homa, ranked No. 8, followed up his 66 from Thursday with another bogey-free round at the Gary Player Country Club. His last competitive event was the Ryder Cup in Italy, where he was the highest scorer for the United States in their loss to the Europeans.

Surprisingly, Homa commented on his performance after a break, saying, “It’s been nice, the body’s feeling better as the week’s gone on. I woke up today and felt like a golfer again, so that was nice. If you fly 20-odd hours over here, you may as well play some good golf. So it’s nice that I’m doing that.”

Pavon shot a 66, the joint best score of the round, thanks to an eagle and five birdies alongside a bogey.

Dan Bradbury shot a 69 to fall 1 shot off the pace, with Nicolai Hojgaard and Thorbjorn Olesen both 2 strokes back. Defending champion Tommy Fleetwood sits 4 shots adrift along with six other players.
