Home Three share the lead at the halfway point of THE PLAYERS

Zach Johnson carded a 6-under 66 on Friday to move to 8-under 136 through two rounds of THE PLAYERS Championship, sharing the lead with Kevin Na and Matt Kuchar. It fell one shy of his best round at the event, a 7-under 65 in his first-ever round at the event in 2005. He also posted a 6-under 66 in the final round a year ago. All three of Johnson’s previous first-round lead/co-leads came during the 2004 season, eventually winning the BellSouth Classic, finishing T11 at the Shell Houston Open and T3 at the Buick Championship. Johnson is making his eighth start at THE PLAYERS, with a T8 in his inaugural start in 2005 his only top-10 finish. He now owns seven made cuts at the event, missing only in 2008. Johnson is making his 12th start of the season, with a runner-up finish at the RBC Heritage and a T8 at the Humana Challenge his lone top 10s. THE PLAYERS champions who have also won the Masters Tournament: Raymond Floyd, Jack Nicklaus, Sandy Lyle, Fred Couples, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson.
