DeChambeau leads by one at halfway point in Mexico

Patrick Reed in the final round Reed secured his eighth title on the PGA Tour

That was gone in a matter of four holes as player after player kept rolling in putts on a day with much less wind and far better scoring.

The noise, at times, can be deafening, deflating.

An eight under par round of 63, which included a remarkable run of seven birdies in eight holes, helped the American take the lead at the halfway point of the tournament at 11 under par in the first World Golf Championship event of 2020.

"I really want that first place", Thomas said. I think I'm final group again tomorrow, so J.T. will be there. "I had a really good attitude on the greens today and it paid off".

Meanwhile, Reed made it hard for anyone to question his moxie. Reed scrambled for a finishing bogey after driving it into the trees and two-putted from 34 feet for the win.

English duo Tyrrell Hatton and Paul Casey are tied for seventh at 10 under after both carding rounds of 66, while Chez Reavie made a hole-in-one on the 167-yard par-three third.

The American started and finished his work with bogeys, yet in between had eight birdies to put himself clear at the top of a high-class leaderboard and in pole position for his third title of the 2019-20 PGA Tour season.

"And then after that, the hole seemed to get a little larger", Reed said.

Patrick Reed also made bogey on the 18th hole for a 67 that cost him a share of the lead, while Erik van Rooyen of South Africa chipped in for the fourth time this week and posted a 67. Reed seized on the moment.

Reed still can't escape the fallout from swiping the sand twice in the Bahamas, especially with Brooks Koepka calling him out during his media availability this week for the PGA Championship. Reed accepted the two-shot penalty and said a different camera angle would have shown his club wasn't as close to the ball as it looked.

Radio host Sway Calloway asked Koepka if Reed was cheating.

Here you can find everything you need to stay up to date with the world's foremost golf tour.

"When you shoot nine-under everything's going well", he said. "You understand the integrity that goes on". I mean, come on.

Reed said all week that he doesn't listen to what others are playing, he just plays golf.

All he did Sunday was win.

"I just threw my hands in the air", DeChambeau said.

"I've always played well at altitude", he smiled.

And then he won in Mexico, moving to No. 1 in the Race to Dubai, No. 5 in the FedEx Cup, No. 8 in the world ranking.

DeChambeau waited around to congratulate Reed. DeChambeau can appreciate heavy criticism, his variety for his pace of play. I feel like unfortunately sometimes we get quite a bad rap. "I've been hitting it great all week".

"There's a long way to go", world-number one McIlroy said of trailing by three shots.

On the 382-yard par-4 ninth hole, van Rooyen reached the green in 2 and sunk a 27-foot putt for birdie.

The overnight leader by two, McIlroy was one-over through nine and did not make his first birdie of the day until the 12th.

Reed was similarly impressive with the putter, posting a burst of four straight birdies on the front nine and notching five more birdies coming home.
