Johnson relied on great wedge play and a few timely putts for a 7-under 66 to take the lead after two rounds of the Tournament of Champions. Defending champion Dustin Johnson (66), Matt Kuchar (68) and Jordan Spieth (70) were tied for second as the winners-only tournament started to show some separation.
Johnson failed to birdie any of the par 5s, and he three-putted the par-5 fifth after hitting a 5-iron into the back of the green. But he got into mix with four birdies on a five-hole stretch on the front nine, and never came close to a bogey.
Johnson was at 13-under 133.
