Bryson DeChambeau made four birdies in his last five holes on his way to a 10-under two-day total and a one-shot lead over Ian Poulter and Si Woo Kim.

After opening with 69-64, the 42-year-old began T2, one back of leader Bryson DeChambeau.

Smith, who played the Harbour Town course's back nine first, looked to be in early trouble when he dropped two shots in the first five holes but turned things around in emphatic fashion with birdies at 15,16 and 18. He answered with back-to-back birdies on 3-foot putts at the par-5 fifth and par-4 sixth, then added another at the eighth before a lost ball off the ninth tee led to another bogey.

After an eagle, two bogeys and three birdies on the front nine, American DeChambeau picked up shots at the 13th, 15th, 16th and 17th holes to head the field. After finding a bunker at 18, he sank a testy 12-footer for par to keep the second-round lead.

Kim, The Players Championship victor, had a 65 which included a two-shot penalty for touching sand after a bunker shot. "I've got a busy summer ahead, but I have a job to do here first". "I think that made me play more aggressively so I'm very happy with my round". I can start attacking pins and just play free golf.

"It's nice. If you keep bogeys off your card you're generally going to have a good round".

Poulter said his Houston victory wiped away any concerns holding him back. "Confidence is definitely there". 'But I'm having great feel around the greens and I feel really confident'. "I can free myself up in my mind".

Chasson Hadley, past RBC Heritage victor Brandt Snedeker, Luke List and first-round leader Rory Sabbatini are two strokes back. Japan's Satoshi Kodaira followed his 73 on Thursday with the lowest round of the tournament so, a 63, on Friday.
