Peter Uihlein followed up a solid first-round performance with another good day Friday, as he leads the Shriners Hospital for Children’s Open at 13 under after two rounds.

The 2010 U.S. Amateur champion wasn’t quite as good as he was Day 1, but he shot a 5-under 66 to take a two-shot lead into moving day.

He was especially good to begin his back nine, as he made three birdies in a row from his 12th through 14th holes.

Uihlein has never won on the PGA Tour.

Two shots back are Robert Streb and Whee Kim, who are both at 11 under for the tournament.

Bryson DeChambeau is three shots back, 10 under, in a tie with Harold Varner III and Abraham Ancer. DeChambeau made five birdies on the back nine.

Elsewhere on the course, Jordan Spieth followed a successful first day shooting 3-under 68 to move into a tie for eighth with Cameron Champ and three others.

Rickie Fowler and Chris Kirk enter the weekend 7 under.
