Second round highlights

With an eagle on the final hole of the second round, Justin Thomas jumped to 7-under-par and into a tie for the 36-hole lead at the TOUR Championship. This is the second time that Thomas has played in the TOUR Championship after finishing T6 in his debut at East Lake last year. Thomas hit his approach from 231 yards to just under six feet on his second shot and went on to make the eagle putt.

This is the 10th time that Webb Simpson has held a share of the lead on the PGA TOUR, converting one of those leads to victory at the 2013 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas. Simpson was tied for the lead at the Wyndham Championship and the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational this season finishing 3rd and 5th, respectively.

FedExCup leader Jordan Spieth followed up his opening-round 67 with an even-par 70 in the second round in his bid to become just the second player to win multiple FedExCups (Tiger Woods – 2007, 2009). After the second round, he has work to do, as his T15 position leaves him projected at a final finish of fourth in the FedExCup standings.

Jon Rahm is T4 after a bogey-free, second-round 67, just one shot off the lead in his bid to win the FedExCup in his first TOUR Championship appearance. He would be the second-youngest winner of the FedExCup, second only to Spieth in 2015. At fifth in the FedExCup entering the week, Rahm would claim the FedExCup with a win at the TOUR Championship.

Patrick Reed had the round of the day, a 5-under 65 that vaulted him into contention, just one shot back of the three-way tie for the lead. Reed entered the week at No. 23 in the FedExCup, so he needs help to win the coveted prize – highlighted by needing leader Thomas to finish in a two-way tie for fifth or worse.
