Day two of the LIV Golf Andalucia witnessed Bryson DeChambeau producing a sensational performance that saw him surge ahead of the competition with a brilliant eagle on the 17th hole.

The American golfer now holds a one-shot lead over compatriot Talor Gooch, setting the stage for an enthralling final day at Valderrama.

Known for his powerful hitting, Bryson DeChambeau delivered an 8-under-par round, showcasing faultless play with six birdies before his remarkable eagle on the 17th.

Meanwhile, day one leader Jason Kokrak faced a challenging day on the course, carding a disappointing 3-over-par 74. The American golfer had already endured a tumultuous week, with travel issues that included flight cancellations and missed connections, delaying his arrival until early Wednesday morning. To compound his troubles, Kokrak's golf clubs were delayed even further, only arriving at 5 p.m. on Thursday. With a faltering performance on day two, Kokrak fell down the leaderboard, relinquishing his grip on the top spot.

The day also proved to be inconsistent for another early leader, Dustin Johnson. The world-renowned golfer struggled with four bogeys and four birdies, resulting in a 4-under-par round. Currently sitting in fourth place, Johnson finds himself five shots adrift of the lead, needing a strong final day performance to contend for the win.

Notably, 2023 US PGA Championship major winner Brooks Koepka positioned himself well in third place, just three shots behind DeChambeau's lead. Koepka's consistent play throughout the tournament puts him in striking distance, ensuring an exhilarating finale awaits golf enthusiasts at Valderrama.

As the LIV Golf Andalucia reaches its climactic conclusion, all eyes will be on Bryson DeChambeau as he aims to maintain his exceptional form and secure victory. However, with talented challengers like Talor Gooch and Brooks Koepka in pursuit, the final day promises to be a thrilling battle as these golfing titans vie for supremacy.
