Not even one bad hole could keep Tiger Woods from a share of the 36-hole lead for the first time in more than three years.
Woods was on the verge of building a cushion Friday in the Tour Championship with three birdies in a four-hole stretch, only to make double bogey from the rough and a plugged lie in the bunker that forced him to play away from the hole at No. 16.
He finished with a two-putt birdie for a 2-under 68 to tie Justin Rose (67) going into the weekend at East Lake in Atlanta.
Rory McIlroy made enough birdies to offset his mistakes and had a 68. He was 2 shots back.
Rose birdied three of his last six holes to offset a bogey for a 67. They were at 7-under 133.
Rory McIlroy made enough birdies to offset his mistakes in a round of 68. He was 2 shots behind.
English golfer Oliver Fisher shot the first round of 59 in the 46-year history of the European Tour. He made an eagle and 10 birdies on a par-71 course in the second round of the Portugal Masters in Vilamoura. There have been 19 rounds of 60 on the European Tour.
Leader Lucas Herbert shot a bogey-free 63 and was 1 stroke ahead of England's Eddie Pepperell and Matt Wallace, and Ireland's Shane Lowry, and 2 in front of China's Haotong Li. Sergio Garcia shot a 5-under 66 and was 3 strokes off the first-round lead.
