Nate Lashley carded a 5-under 67 to maintain a one-shot lead at the Rocket Mortgage Classic after Round 2.

The 36-year-old fired a bogey-free 63 in Round 1 and followed it with a one-bogey, six-birdie showing Friday to get to 14-under at Detroit Golf Club.

Trailing Lashley is Cameron Champ, who fired a front-nine 28 but dropped a shot on the back nine to settle with a 7-under 65.

Champ won the Sanderson Farms Championship in only his second start as a full-time PGA Tour member in October. But he's battled injuries since then and only made two cuts since February.

Here's how the top of the leaderboard stands after Round 2:

Position Player To Par R2 Score
1 Nate Lashley -14 67
2 Cameron Champ -13 65
3 Charles Howell III -12 67
T4 Ryan Armour -11 69
T4 J.T. Poston -11 63
T6 Peter Malnati -10 66
T6 Byeong Hun An -10 66
T6 Rory Sabbatini -10 69
T6 Joaquin Niemann -10 66
T6 Harris English -10 68

Hideki Matsuyama sits at 9-under in a tie for 11th, while Rickie Fowler and Patrick Reed are both at 8-under.

Surprisingly, Dustin Johnson, Gary Woodland, and Bubba Watson all failed to make the 5-under cut line, which is the lowest cut relative to par since the 2016 RSM Classic, according to Golf Channel's Will Gray.
