Brooks Koepka posted a 6-under 66 in Round 2 of the WGC-Workday Championship to hold a one-shot edge going into the weekend.

Koepka took a while to get going Friday at The Concession Golf Club. He played the first six holes at 1-under but eventually added five more red numbers to his scorecard before bogeying his final hole.

Koepka tops a stout group of chasers as he looks to claim his ninth PGA Tour title and second WGC victory.

Collin Morikawa tied the low round of the day with an 8-under 64. He has a share of second place with Aussie Cameron Smith and Billy Horschel.

Tony Finau, Webb Simpson, and Patrick Reed are also within striking distance.

Here's how the top of the leaderboard sits with two rounds remaining:

Place Player To Par R2 Score
1 Brooks Koepka -11 66
T2 Cameron Smith -10 66
T2 Billy Horschel -10 67
T2 Collin Morikawa -10 64
T5 Tony Finau -9 67
T5 Webb Simpson -9 69
T5 Matt Fitzpatrick -9 69
T8 Patrick Reed -8 68
T8 Kevin Kisner -8 69
T10 Louis Oosthuizen -7 68
T10 Abraham Ancer -7 66

Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas share 13th at 5-under for the week.

Bryson DeChambeau (3-under) improved on his first-round score by 13 strokes on Friday. His 64 matched Morikawa's for the best of the day.

Round 3 of the WGC from Bradenton, Florida, begins at 7:50 a.m. ET with the final pairing of Koepka and Smith teeing off at 1:55 p.m.
