Three players are tied for the lead heading into the weekend at the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club.
US PGA champion Justin Thomas moved into pole position to win the FedEx Cup title and $10million bonus after claiming a share of the halfway lead in the Tour Championship.
Tied for fourth at 6-under 134 is Patrick Reed, England's Justin Rose (66), Gary Woodland (67) and Spain's Jon Rahm (67).
Unable to make many putts, the reigning PGA Championship victor played his next 11 holes in even par and reached the 18th tee two shots off the lead.
Saturday's first pairing of Rickie Fowler and Kevin Chappell - both have surprisingly struggled this week - will start things off at 12:15 p.m. "But I felt like maybe that would be key, just hitting a lot of fairways and giving myself chances on second shots".
Things were even worse for Marc Leishman who compounded a hard day yesterday with another over par score Friday to be nine shots back heading to the weekend.
He entered the week at second in the FedEx Cup standings behind Spieth, but is now projected first. He finally finished with a double-bogey six.
Dustin Johnson, the No 3 seed, is not out of the picture after his bogey-free round.
Jordan Spieth was lucky to still be just four shots behind.
Two three putts and an inability to get up and down after missing the 13th green dropped him from 5-under to 2-under and with the leaders going forward he was quickly outside the top 10. Rahm made eagle on the par-5 sixth, and he almost ended his round with another eagle.
Three back is Jason Day, who carded a three-under 67 to get to four-under 136.
He already can state his case as the best player on the PGA Tour this year, with five victories and his first major at the PGA Championship. He ultimately finished his round with five consecutive pars.
"The World Tour - it's going to happen one day and I think it has to", said the Northern Irishman.
"It would cap off a very good season, make a very good season a great season", he said.
