- Australia's Jason Day fired a three-under par 68 to share the lead with American Ryan Palmer after Saturday's second round of the US PGA Deutsche Bank Championship.

Day and Palmer, who fired a par 71, stood on eight-under par 134 with Americans Matt Kuchar and Billy Horschel on 135 and Americans Bill Haas, Patrick Reed, Webb Simpson, Russell Henley and Keegan Bradley on 136.

Only the 70 points leaders after this week's second event of the US tour's season-ending playoffs with advance to next week's BMW Championship in Denver.

"It's not playing easy," Day said. "I made it look easy on the front nine, rolled in a lot of good birdie chances.

"Came home a little rough. But I'm confident heading into tomorrow."
