GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Henrik Stenson, the highest-ranked golfer in the Wyndham Championship field, shot 4-under-par 66 in Friday's second round to move into the lead after the morning groups at Sedgefield Country Club.

Stenson is at 12 under at the midway mark, holding a two-shot advantage on Hunter Mahan (65) and Kevin Na (63) with most of the golfers with morning tee times completing their rounds. Mahan had his second consecutive 65.

Stenson, who holds a No. 9 world rating, logged birdies on three of four holes during one stretch as he finished on the front side.

First-round leader Matt Every, who shot a 61 on Thursday, was among the golfers scheduled for an afternoon tee time in Round 2.

The most entertaining round of Friday morning belonged to Johnson Wagner, who shot 64 despite ending with a bogey. He is 9 under for the tournament.

Wagner registered an albatross -- a double eagle on the par-5 fifth hole after holing out his second shot, marking the second one of his PGA Tour career. Ten holes later, he posted an eagle on No. 15.

Harold Varner III (68) also is at 9 under through two rounds.
