Dustin Johnson seized a share of the lead after carding a second consecutive 4-under-68 heading into the final round of LIV Golf's stop at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club.

Round 1 leader Carlos Ortiz fired off a 3-under-69 on Friday and sits atop the leaderboard in Portland with Johnson at 8-under for the tournament. Branden Grace is two strokes back of the lead, while Justin Harding is three behind thanks to his sterling round of 5-under-67, which was the best score of the day.

Johnson's team, the 4 Aces GC, continues to lead the way with a top score of 15-under, which is good for a four-stroke edge over Stinger GC.

LIV Golf newcomer Brooks Koepka shot another 2-under-70 and is tied for fifth.

Both Patrick Reed and Bryson DeChambeau fared better than they did on Thursday, shooting a 68 and 69, respectively. Reed is now tied for fifth, while DeChambeau is tied for 10th.

Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson shot 3-over par for the second consecutive day.

The 54-hole event concludes Saturday.
