MEMPHIS, June 11 (UPI) -- Lee Westwood birdied his last three holes Friday to maintain a share of the lead with Garrett Willis midway through the St. Jude Classic.

Westwood, ranked third in the world and seeking his second victory on U.S. soil, shot a 2-under 68 at the TPC-Southwind course to finish 36 holes at 131. Willis equaled the day's low score with a 65 Friday.

Charley Hoffman also had a 65 and was alone in third at 132. Robert Karlsson and Robert Garrigus shared fourth at 133.

The 36-hole cut came at 1-over 141 and among those missing it was 16-year-old amateur Jordan Spieth. He finished among the top 20 at the Byron Nelson Classic last month, but failed by a single shot to make the cut this week.

John Daly survived the cut with a 141 total.

This is the final PGA Tour event before the U.S. Open, which will be played for the fourth time at the Pebble Beach Golf Links beginning next Thursday.
