Tiger Woods tied for the lead at the Tour Championship

Rory Mc Ilroy is T2nd after 54 holes

Rory Mc Ilroy is T2nd after 54 holes

Woods last shared the 36-hole lead in the 2015 Wyndham Championship.

Former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover shot his second consecutive 7-under 64 on Friday to take a one-shot lead at the Web.com Tour Championship.

He finished with a two-putt birdie for a 2-under 68 to tie Justin Rose (67) going into the weekend at East Lake.

Woods, a former two-time victor of the season-ending event, had been two strokes clear of his rivals before stumbling to a double-bogey on 16. He wound up tied for 10th.

Woods, whose last win came in the 2013 WGC Bridgestone Invitational, told Sky Sports: 'I ground out a round today, I wasn't as sharp as I was yesterday and missed a few shots but hung in there with a bunch of pars and made a couple of putts which was nice'.

Rory McIlroy made enough birdies to offset his mistakes in a round of 68. "That's basically what they're doing".

He took a step back immediately with a double bogey at 16, but was able to get a shot back on 18 to get back into the tie for the lead.

USA ‘very, very close’ to Mexico-only NAFTA deal: White House
Freeland and Lighthizer are due in NY next week for the United Nations General Assembly, but it was unclear if they would meet. Canada, a close military ally and the top buyer of US goods, has said the national security justification is "absurd".

He appeared to be building separation against the 30-man field with that four-hole stretch on the back nine that he capped off with a 25-foot birdie putt on the peninsula green at the par-3 15th.

As for playing with Woods in the final group on Saturday, Rose added: 'I'm very much looking forward to it, in my mind he's the greatest of all time just cause he's in the era I've witnessed. It was a slow bleed for Fowler, who went birdie-free over his last 12 holes and shot 39 on the back nine for a 72.

American duo Woods and Rickie Fowler, who will be Ryder Cup team-mates Le Golf National next week, were out in front on five under after the first round at East Lake. He thought he could gouge it out of the rough and over the tree to just short of the green, but he misjudged the lie. He was two back. "But I thought I could sneak it up there and get up on the upslope and have a good angle in there, and it just didn't work out".

Rose has consistently been in contention during the FedEx Cup playoffs and he once again played well carding five birdies to just two bogeys.

DeChambeau is just one ahead of US Open and US PGA victor Brooks Koepka, who shot a 78 that left him dead last in the 30-man field on seven-over.

Glover had arthroscopic knee surgery in June and will have eight starts to earn 53 FedEx Cup points and keep his card. Johnson rallied for a 70 and was six behind.
