GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) Tiger Woods shot a 5-under 65 on Friday to share the second-round lead in the Wyndham Championship.

Woods joined rookie Tom Hoge at 11-under 129. Hoge shot a 67.

The sport's biggest name put himself in position to contend for his first victory in more than two years, one that would send him into the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Woods followed his best round since 2013 - a first-day 64 - with one almost as good.

He made his big move up the leaderboard on the back nine, with birdies on Nos. 12 and 13 and eagled the par-5 13th for a share of the lead.
