Molder (36), seeking his second win on the PGA Tour, carded four birdies over a sizzling five-hole stretch starting at the par-five 12th en route to a six-under 64 that was the lowest round of the day.

Molder’s two-day 132 total left him level with compatriots Chad Collins (67) and Kevin Chappell (67) and New Zealand’s Danny Lee (69).

Watson, fresh off a victory at the Travelers Championship, also enjoyed a strong finish to card a two-under 68 that put him into contention ahead of the weekend.

The two-times Masters champion, who started on the back nine, birdied his first hole but was one over at the turn after bogeys at the 12th and 17th holes.

Watson steadied the ship after that and then made a late charge with birdies on three of his final five holes.
