Potomac Falls, VA–

Coming into the 2nd Round of LIV Golf DC, it looked like Harold Varner III had set himself up nicely to outpace the field at -9 under, that was until Mito Pereira, of Team Torque crept up and took the lead by just one stroke. He’s at 99 under par, in front by 1.

Pereira had 10 birdies on his card on Saturday. He has a one shot lead over Harold Varner III, who was in the lead after the first DC round. One shot back of Varner is both Henrik Stenson and Kevin Na — both are at seven under par.

“Obviously seven birdies and an eagle is always nice. Unfortunately, I hit a couple of shots that weren’t where they needed to be and resulted in a couple of bogeys, but for the most part you get what you deserve in this game, right?” Stenson said Saturday. “And five under is always going to be a good round around this golf course.”

Two of the most followed groups in Round 1 in Phil Mickelson and Brooks Koepka seem to be out of contention all together, however their teams still have a shot on Sunday to make some noise.

Team Torque is now in the lead. It has a three-shot advantage over Team Stinger, in addition to the RangeGoats. On Sunday, Team Torque is looking for its first team win since LIV Orlando.
