World No. 1 Justin Rose crafted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to reach 7-under 133, up two places to T1 and good for a share of the 36-hole lead with overnight co-leader Tiger Woods, who shot 68.

The Englishman found seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.203 approaching and 1.210 around-the-green. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 4 and 16 (failed scrambles), outpaced by five circles at 2, 6, 13, 14 and 18, three from between 17 and 28 feet. The 38-year-old recorded 1.692 putts per GIR and 0.602 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. This is his 14th 36-hole lead/co-lead in 323 events, previously 3-for-13 converting, including at this season's Fort Worth Invitational.

Rory McIlroy continued his ball-striking clinic during round two of the TOUR Championship, twirling a 2-under-par 35-33=68 to arrive at the weekend on 5-under 135 which puts him in solo third just behind World No. 1 Justin Rose and Tiger Woods.

McIlroy is not holding anything back with the big stick, ranking 2nd in driving distance and 1st in strokes gained off-the-tee (+3.190). The big hitter also ranks 3rd in approach to the green. McIlroy has split just 11 (of 28) fairways thru 36 holes (T25) which is not making his task any easier here at East Lake Golf Club which features difficult bermuda rough. His short game hasn't been disastrous but it is the only thing holding him back from a runaway lead right now. He entered the week ranked 17th in the FedExCup standings so he'll need a victory in order to have a chance at securing his second FedExCup title.

Defending champion Xander Schauffele pieced together an even-par 36-34=70 during round two of the TOUR Championship, arriving at the midpoint on 2-under 138 which places him at T10 on the live leaderboard.

Schauffele found just five (of 14) fairways for the second straight day. That ranks 29th in the field in terms of driving accuracy. Despite the troubles on the tee box, the second-year man has still managed to hang around, largely due to his short game (6th in SG:Around-the-Green and 5th in SG:Putting). Today, he overcame a water ball at the 8th and a three-jack at the 15th. Schauffele has not played his best golf through 36 holes but he finds himself just three off his 36-hole pace here last year. He closed with rounds of 65-68 last year to walk straight into the winner's circle. Don't count him out just yet but it would take a superb run over the weekend to go back-to-back.

World No. 7 Jon Rahm bobbed and weaved to a 2-under-par 30-38=68 in the second round of the TOUR Championship for a 36-hole total of 4-under 136, up four places on the live leaderboard to T4, two short of co-leaders on the course Justin Rose and first-round co-leader Tiger Woods.

This is the Spaniard's second appearance after T7 last year (67-67-70-69). He checked in at 24th in the FedExCup standings and has kicked off the postseason with a missed cut (NORTHERN TRUST), a T43 at the Dell Tech, and a T24 at the BMW Championship two weeks ago. The 23-year-old hit seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 0.687 strokes off-the-tee but losing 1.271 approaching and 0.162 around-the-green. He carded seven birdies, six on a first-half 30, but took some luster off with three bogey-5s and a double bogey-5 at 15 (tee ball in the water). The ASU alum's split featured five conversions from between 10 and 22 feet, registering a tidy 1.364 putts per GIR and 3.082 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. Rahm also opened with a 68 (5 birdies, 1 bogey, 1 double).

World No. 23 Patrick Cantlay styled a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to reach 4-under 136, up 18 spots on the live leaderboard to T3 and good for the 36-hole clubhouse co-lead with Billy Horschel though four shy of the leader on the course Tiger Woods.

The 26-year-old matches the low round of the day thus far with Horschel and ties the low of the week with overnight co-leaders Rickie Fowler and Woods. On seven (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, he gained 0.568 strokes off-the-tee and 3.511 on approach, currently No. 1 on the day in GIR and SG: Approach. The UCLA product squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 1 (failed scramble), smothered by six circles at 3, 4, 6, 9, 12 and 18, two from between 10 and 40 feet. He recorded 1.625 putts per GIR and 1.348 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.

World No. 20 Hideki Matsuyama smoothed a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the TOUR Championship for a 36-hole total of 2-under 138, up 13 places to T12 with play still in progress.

The Japanese star went six better than an opening three-birdie, five-bogey 72 and records the first (and only) blemish-free lap of the week thus far. On seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, he lost -0.420 strokes off-the-tee but gained 2.822 on approach and 0.560 around-the-green, and is currently No. 1 for the day in proximity to hole (27'0"). The 25-year-old carded four birdies at holes 1, 6, 14 and 18, all from inside of 10 feet, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.666 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. His 66 matched his best at East Lake in 18 rounds, shot in R1 in 2016 where he finished a personal-best 5th.

Eddie Pepperell joined Oli Fisher and Lucas Herbert in a tie for the 36-hole lead of the Portugal Masters at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course after a second round 5-under-par 34-32-66 for a total of 12-under 130.

The Englishman is always keen to relate how much he enjoys playing in Vilamoura and that's not changed so far this week. In fact, but for one hole - a double bogey-5 at the 218-yard par-3 sixth on Friday - he has thrashed the Arnold Palmer design. Other than that error he had three front nine birdies (at 3, 5 and 7). He then added more red at the tenth, 12th, 14th and 15th. It gives him a weekend look at a second ET win of the year and his career, an improvement on his course best of T3, and the chance of a fifth top ten in seven starts. The three leaders hold a one shot advantage over Matt Wallace.

Oliver Fisher became the first golfer in European Tour history to post 59; his second round 12-under-par 28-31=59 launching him to the top of the live leaderboard on 12-under 130 in the Portugal Masters at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course, Vilamoura. Update:- By day's end Fisher had been joined at the top by both Lucas Herbert and Eddie Pepperell, holding a one shot lead over Matt Wallace.

The front nine of just 28 blows was sensational. He opened with a hat-trick of par breakers, reduced the 579-yard par-5 fifth to just three shots, then added birdie-2s at both 6 and 8. A change in tempo on the way home? Anything but. Again he started with three red numbers in a row, completing it with a tap-in effort at the 593-yard par-5 12th. He added three pars (at 16 from 20'0") whilst taking advantage of the short (315-yard) par-4 15th (from 6'0") and the 588-yard par-5 17th (converting a knee-knocking three-footer). Needing a par on the last he thrashed his drive down the middle of the fairway, played a safe approach and then his 35'0" birdie effort actually grazed the hole's edge before he completed the record-breaker. "I had it in the back of my mind that a few years ago I was playing here to save my card," he said. "So I tried to enjoy it, knowing it could be worse pressure."

Justin Rose completed a strong finish to post a round one 4-under-par 33-33=66 and will dine only one back of the early pace-setters Rickie Fowler and Tiger Woods, tied with Gary Woodland, in the TOUR Championship at East Lake.

A fine start to the Englishman's quest for season-ending glory and yet it could have been so much better. On the front nine he drained three birdies in the 9 to 13 feet range (at 4, 8 and 9), but missed four chances from inside 19 feet (two of them from less than half of that). He also three-putted the fifth for bogey. On the way home he ticked the tenth from just 3'6", had a second three-putt bogey at No. 15, missed three par-breaking opportunities between 10 and 19 feet, and then stepped up to the plate to circle 17 from 20'11" and 18 from 5'3". Victory this week would guarantee FedEx Cup glory. Even a top nine gives him a mathematical chance of the latter, but realistically he needs to finish top three.

Justin Thomas showed no signs of a wrist injury as he recovered from an few early blemishes to record a 3-under-par 36-31=67 during the opening round of the TOUR Championship, placing him at T4 on the live leaderboard.

JT entered the week with a question mark concerning his health. He tweaked his wrist during the final round of the BMW Championship and has it taped up this week as a precaution. It didn't seem to bother him today as he gained 1.48 strokes off-the-tee and pelted 15 greens in regulation. The putter was the only weakness today as he missed four putts from the 6-to-12 foot range and a few more from just outside that range to lose 0.202 strokes putting on the day. Two of those misses came at the opening holes to drop a few shots right out of the gate. It was a nice recovery after a slow start and it included a three-hole birdie train from 10 thru 12 to please DFS gamers. Playing his ninth round at East Lake Golf Club, JT has now been inside the top 9 after all nine rounds played here.

Rickie Fowler set the early target, soon matched by Tiger Woods, in the first lap of the 2018 TOUR Championship at East Lake with a 5-under-par 33-32=65.

A career-low circuit for the 29-year-old at the Atlanta track and it betters his previous round one best by no less than four swings. He's also now in A1 position to notch a top five in the season-ender for the first time in five attempts. There was little clue through four holes of what was to come, but he drained from 8'0" at the fifth, from 12'5" at the eighth and made an up-and-down for a third par-breaker at the par-5 sixth. Alas he also made bogey at No. 7 and missed a further birdie chance from 11'0" at the ninth. After the turn, he made birdies from 9'5" at the 11th, from 19'0" at the 14th and with another up-and-down at the 18th. But in an echo of the front nine he missed the chance to tick 16 and 17 from inside 11 feet. He landed 16 of 18 greens in regulation.

Gary Woodland pieced together a 4-under-par 33-33=66 during round one of the TOUR Championship, grabbing a spot in third place on the live leaderboard, just one off the co-leaders Tiger Woods and Rickie Fowler.

Woodland striped 10 (of 14) fairways and peppered 13 greens in regulation today. Most of his approaches left him with mid-range putts that are tough to hole on the undulating bermuda greens of East Lake Golf Club. He did miss a 5'8" birdie chance that I'm sure he'd love to have another crack at. As for the highlight reel, the Kansas Jayhawk converted a 13'7" birdie from the fringe at the 5th and then splashed home a 40'2" eagle bomb at the par-5 sixth hole. Woodland is making his sixth appearance at East Lake with a T9 (2014) and T10 (2016) as the notable finishes. Starting at 28th in the FedExCup standings, Woodland is really just playing for the TOUR Championship trophy, as he's an extreme long shot to take home the FedExCup.
