Haotong Li posted a blistering 5-under 65 in Round 2 of the PGA Championship to pull ahead by two shots midway through Friday.

The 25-year-old made three birdies in his first five holes en route to a bogey-free performance at TPC Harding Park. Surprisingly, Li only hit four of 14 fairways during his round. His 65 ties for the lowest major round in the last 20 years by someone who hit four or fewer fairways.

China's top-ranked golfer (No. 114 in the world) is looking for his best major finish since placing third at the 2017 Open Championship.

Tommy Fleetwood sits alone in second at 6-under par after shooting the lowest round of the week so far. He turned in a 6-under 64 to vault up the leaderboard.

The afternoon wave of tee times is currently underway. Tiger Woods starts his second round at 4:58 p.m. ET.
