The Tour Championship 2012: Jim Furyk Takes Over Tournament Lead

After the second round at East Lake, Jim Furyk is now the tournament leader thanks to a furious run in which he hit birdies on seven of 10 holes to take over the lead. His 64 score is the best by any player so far in the tournament, two strokes ahead of the day's second-best, Bubba Watson's 66.

Seven strokes and 15 spots behind Furyk on the leaderboard, Cleveland-native Jason Dufner continued to play even with his second 70 score of the tournament. He is now tied with five other golfers for the No. 16 spot in the tournament standings, one stroke behind Tiger Woods.

Woods, the tournament leader after Day 1, struggled on Friday with five bogeys and a double bogey on the eighth hole. While he managed four birdies to keep his day's score at 3-over, it was enough to send him out of the top 10.
