Beginning on No. 10, 2008 and 2009 Valero Texas Open champion Zach Johnson reeled off four consecutive birdies (Nos. 12-15) en route to a 7-under 65. He made additional birdies at Nos. 17 and 1 and holed a greenside bunker shot for an eagle-2 at No. 5.
This marks the ninth time Johnson has held at least a share of a 36-hole lead on the PGA TOUR. The only one which resulted in victory was the 2004 AT&T Classic outside Atlanta.
Through 36 holes, Johnson has played the AT&T Oaks Course in even par on the front nine and 9-under on the inward nine.
Johnson won the 2008 and 2009 Valero Texas Open at LaCantera Golf Club in his first two starts in the event and is one of just four winners in tournament history, dating to 1922, to successfully defend his title (Bill Mehlhorn/1928-29, Arnold Palmer/1960-62, Justin Leonard/2000-01).
With scores of 68-67—135 (-9), Ryan Moore is the only player in the field to remain bogey free.
This marks the seventh occasion on which Moore has held a lead/co-lead after 36 holes. The only one which he converted into victory was the 2016 John Deere Classic.
Since 2000, seven of the 18 second-round leaders/co-leaders of the Valero Texas Open have gone on to win, most recently being Jimmy Walker in 2015.
