Zach in 2nd Place After Second Round of the Colonial
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Jason Dufner moved into position for his second straight victory and third in five weeks, shooting a bogey-free 6-under 64 on Friday to take a two-stroke lead in the Colonial.
The Byron Nelson Championship winner last week, Dufner had an 11-under 129 total at Hogan's Alley. First-round leader Zach Johnson was second after a 67, and Bo Van Pelt and Tommy Gainey were third at 7 under. Van Pelt had a 64, and Gainey shot 67.
The only player to win both PGA Tour events in the Dallas-Fort Worth market in the same year was Ben Hogan in 1946. Both of Dufner's PGA Tour victories came in his previous three starts. He has led or shared the lead after 11 of his last 34 rounds.
Johnson had his 14th consecutive sub-par round at Colonial, one more than Van Pelt.
Defending champion David Toms missed the cut, shooting 74-71.
