Beau Hossler carded a second-round 65 to move up to the top of the leaderboard at the Zozo Championship.

"I've been playing well lately. It's a difficult golf course in spots, it's a very gettable golf course in spots.

"With that being said, playing in whatever, easily 20- to 30-mile an hour winds today was certainly a challenge. I'd say anything under par was a really quality score, so to shoot 5 under par was incredible."

His 65 marks the American's 17th consecutive round of par or better on Tour. He has recorded four top-10 finishes in 32 starts this season, including T7 at last week’s Shriners Children’s Open.

American Justin Suh closed with a 66 to move into second place at 6-under followed one shot behind by Japan's Satoshi Kodaira (68).

"I think we had the first hole and a half where the wind didn't pick up, and we were hoping that it didn't come until the fourth hole because that's one of the toughest tee shots out here. But throughout the day it just kind of kept on gusting. You'd get one every five minutes that would come like 40 miles an hour and it was pretty insane," said Suh.

"Overall, I thought I was able to hit those low shots really well with my irons. Drove it pretty good, kept it in play. Didn't have any big misses, made some putts, so that kind of sums up my round."

Argentina's Emiliano Grillo shot a 71 for a share of fourth place at 4-under alongside Americans Xander Schauffele and rookie Eric Cole as well as Yuki Inamori of Japan (67). Cole's 71 broke his streak of 16 consecutive rounds of par or better.

The top 125 in the FedExCup Fall standings thru The RSM Classic will be exempt into Full-Field events and The Players Championship next season.

Nos. 51-60 in the standings at the conclusion of The RSM Classic will qualify for two Signature Events in 2024 via The Next 10 (AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, The Genesis Invitational).
