ATLANTA, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- After a 3-under-par 67 Friday, Adam Scott joined Joe Durant at the top of the leader-board after two rounds of the season-ending PGA Tour Championship.

During the second round, Scott made birdies at holes, 3, 6, 8 and 9 and only a bogey at No. 10 kept him from shooting 66.

He shot 31 on the front nine.

"I'm very happy with the way, I'm driving (the golf ball)," Scott said. "It's a difficult course."

Durant (68), a first-round co-leader with Retief Goosen, saved par at No. 18 to grab a piece of the lead for another day.

Goosen (71), Trevor Immelman (66), Stuart Appleby (70), and Brett Quigley (71) are tied for third at 4-under 139 at Atlanta's East Lake Country Club golf course.

Jim Furyk (71), Luke Donald (67), and Zach Johnson (69) are tied for seventh place at even-par 140.

Defending champion Bart Bryant did not qualify this year.
