World No. 2 and Dallas resident Scottie Scheffler holds a one-stroke lead at 14-under after carding another 64 in the AT&T Byron Nelson.

"It's nice getting some birdies out of the way early around this place. Obviously the scores are pretty low so it's nice when you can get off to a good start.

"I want to win a lot of tournaments. This one being in the hometown, it would definitely be a lot of fun with the crowd behind me this weekend.

"But that's not stuff that occupies too many of my thoughts. I don't want to place too much emphasis on one tournament. I just want to go out and do my best and see where that puts me. "

With a win on Sunday Scheffler would return to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking but would remain No.2 behind Jon Rahm in the FedExCup standings.

Ryan Palmer, who also lives locally, tied his career-low opening 36-hole score (129) for the second consecutive year in this event to move into a share of second place at 13-under.

"It's nice to shoot a good round after a really good round on Thursday," said Palmer. "It's hard to do. I hit the ball well today. I really feel like my ball-striking was a little better today than it was yesterday. Never really got in trouble, which was the key. Kept it in the fairway and hit a lot of greens I felt like.

"Gave myself the right chances, and I took advantage of them.

"It's nice to back up a 64 with a 65 for sure. Excited. It's nice to be in a position I hadn't been here in a while, and it feels great."

Canadian Mackenzie Hughes carded a 64 for his share of second place.

South Korean Si Woo Kim closed with a 66 to move into fourth place at 11-under followed by American Richy Werenski (68) in fifth at 10-under.

Fellow South Korean S.Y. Noh, who held the overnight lead after tying the course record, shot a 74 and lies in T14 at 8-under.
