Tiger Woods was in contention for his first PGA Tour win in two years as he lay in joint third place after his second round of the Quicken Loans National.
The 39-year-old shot a five-under-par 66 on Friday to go with his opening round 68 as he lay on eight under in Gainesville, Virginia.
Sweden's David Lingmerth was the clubhouse leader on nine under, with a host of other players still on the course.
Woods, who missed consecutive cuts in major championships for the first time in his career in the US Open and Open Championship, carded six birdies and one bogey to remain on track to arrest the miserable run of form he has been displaying in recent months.
Scotland's Russell Knox was on six under after a 67, while defending champion Justin Rose slipped down the leaderboard as a level-par round of 71 left him on five under.
