Tournament of Champions 2017: Friday Leaderboard Scores and Highlights


In a low-scoring second round at the 2017 Tournament of Champions, Ryan Moore and Justin Thomas went on late runs to overtake Patrick Reed in a tie for the lead at 12-under par.

Reed’s eight-under par total in the second round marked the low score of the day. He didn’t hit a bogey all round and had five birdies on the back nine. Moore went on a run of four birdies in five holes on the back nine to put himself in contention alongside Reed.

Per Justin Ray of the Golf Channel, Reed has particular affection for this tournament based on recent results:
