Luke Guthrie keen to keep momentum

Overnight leader Luke Guthrie feels confident heading into the third round of the Honda Classic in Florida.

Luke Guthrie has said that he could not wait to start his second round at the Honda Classic after signing for a 68 in his first round.

The 23-year-old American leads by two shots at the half-way stage in Florida and feels that he is in fine fettle as the weekend approaches.

"I was really hitting good, crisp shots, firing at flags," Guthrie told

"I felt like I could have shot five-under yesterday pretty quickly. I was pretty excited to get back out here and kept it rolling."

Defending champion Rory McIlroy withdrew midway through the second round at the PGA National Champion Course.
