His short game was working well and it took only 26 putts to get round the course, only three more than in the first round.

"The putter has been really good so far, but I've been in position a lot," he said. "I've had a lot of good looks at it. I'm just able to put a little pressure on the course right now, which is nice."

Zach Johnson, who was tied for the lead overnight, slipped down to T2 partly because of a 10-second rule when a birdie putt hung on the lip of the cup for too long before falling in and he had to settle for a par.

"After 10 seconds, the ball was moving and at that point even if the ball is moving, it's deemed to be at rest, because it's on the lip," he said. "Don't ask me why, but that's just the way it is."

Matt Jone and Russell Henley are tied for second place with Johnson with rounds of 66 and 65.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth, who fired a first-round 63, took a triple-bogey 8 at the par-5 13th, his fourth hole of the day, and added three bogeys, an eagle and a lone birdie to stand on four-under 136.

Rory McIlroy, a back-nine starter like Spieth, began the day one off the lead and shot 69 to stand on 133.

US Open champions Patrick Reed missed the cut by a shot.
