The opening round of the 2021 American Express is in the rearview, and now the stars of the PGA Tour will battle on Friday for a chance to play the weekend. Here’s what you need to know to watch the second round.

Previewing American Express Round 2

Tony Finau is one of the best players in the field at this week’s American Express event, and everything he did during the first round backed that up. After tickling Phil Mickelson with monster drives during a charity event on Wednesday, Finau took to the Stadium Course on Thursday and drained six birdies on his way to a four-under 68.

That leaves Tony four shots off the lead set by Brandon Hagy. Hagy played the Nicklaus Tournament Course on Thursday, and took advantage of the layout to shoot an eight-under 64. Through 18 holes, he holds a narrow one-shot lead over Byeong Hun An, with three players tied for third at six under.
