RORY McILROY: Late slip in Travelers Championship second round

"After 10 seconds, the ball was moving and at that point even if the ball is moving, It's deemed to be at rest, because it's on the lip", Johnson said.

Harman had his short game working for the second consecutive day, taking 26 putts after needing only 23 during the first round.

"I would probably call it third best of the year, behind the first and last round at Augusta", Spieth said.

"I've seen the shot a lot of times, especially the couple weeks after the golf tournament". Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ont., and Nick Taylor of Abbotsford did not make the cut.

Left-hander Harman (31) made seven birdies in a four-under 66 to lead by two shots on 10-under par from Bryson DeChambeau (66) and Paul Casey (67).

Spieth and Johnson, between them winners of two of the past three British Opens, headed Britain's Rory McIlroy by one stroke as the cream quickly rose to the top on the TPC River Highlands course in Cromwell, Connecticut.

"We all as competitors and golfers, we want to have really, really hard tests that make you push it physically and mentally", Johnson said.

"I'm exhausted mentally. I'm still playing well so I'm not too anxious about today". "That's as good an up and down as I've ever witnessed or performed". "Today I started out hotter. I felt pretty comfortable with the changes I'm trying to make and hit some pretty good shots".

Spieth didn't try to replicate his magnificent bunker blast during a practice round.

Rory McIlroy shrugged off a frustrating day on the greens and continued his quest to turn back the clock in his search for his ideal swing. McIlroy, Watson and Justin Thomas (5 under) were grouped together Thursday and Friday, drawing large galleries. "Still don't really know where I'm at", a tired Koepka told reporters. "It's fun playing with good friends". But that being said, any time you have the opportunity to get into contention, you can learn from that and use it in future events. I couldn't really get into it. "I think it showed kind of coming in".

But the pair enjoyed a welcome return to form in CT, with Spieth holding a share of the lead with Zach Johnson, while McIlroy was just one shot further back.

Spieth had six birdies and an eagle out the bunker on par-5 sixth hole, something like the shot he hit from a greenside bunker to win over Daniel Berger in a playoff.

"Honestly I thought the golf course played fair", Reed said.
