Henrik Stenson and Adam Scott started Round 2 as the leaders at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.
They held their positions from pole-to-pole on Friday and will be the top two golfers heading into a stormy Day 3 at East Lake.
Stenson shot a four-under 66 to move to 10 under par through two days—the best opening-round performance of his career. Scott shot a one-under 69 to claim second spot at six under, four strokes behind the red-hot Swede.
Rookie Jordan Spieth will round out the final threesome as the golfers tee off early in hopes of avoiding inclement weather later in the day. Spieth shot a 67 on Day 2 to move into third place at five under par.
Though the field for the Tour Championship is narrowed to just 30 golfers, there were plenty of struggles on the course on Friday. Charl Schwartzl posted a devastating 79, while Tiger Woods went five under through 13 holes but gave six strokes back from 14 to 17 to finish the day one over par.
Saturday's action is scheduled to get underway at 7:30 a.m. ET, with Stenson, Scott and Spieth teeing off at 9. With three of the top five FedEx Cup golfers still near the top of the leaderboard, the chase for the $10 million grand prize should get very interesting this weekend.
