Bryant, Goosen share lead

Atlanta, November 5:

Bart Bryant settled for a 68 and a tie for the lead with defending champion Retief Goosen in the second round of the Tour Championship. Goosen posted a 4-under 66 to erase a five-shot deficit.

Tiger Woods scratched out a 67 and was three shots back along with Ben Crane (65) and Scott Verplenk (66). Bryant knocked in a 6-foot birdie putt on the 7th hole to go 11 under and five shots clear of anyone else. Even Goosen started to wonder if anyone could catch him.

Bryant made his first bogey by going from bunker-to-bunker on No 8, and a layup into the bunker on the 9th cost him a chance at birdie. Tim Clark shot 67 and was at 6-under 134. Charles Howell III (68) and Stuart Appleby (65) were another shot behind.
