Jason Dufner carded a 63 to move into a one-shot halfway lead at the Wells Fargo Championship. The 42-year-old opened at Quail Hollow with a 68 and improved the second time around, recording seven birdies, an eagle and a single bogey to move to 11-under.
Joel Dahmen and Max Homa are second, one back, while two-time champion Rory McIlroy is tied for fourth with Patrick Reed after a second round of 70. Since winning the 2013 US PGA Championship, Dufner has struggled for consistency and has again chopped and changed his clubs this season.

“I’m trying to find stuff that’s going to work. “Being competitive, trying to win tournaments, is where I want to be. I’ve done everything I ever thought I could do in golf, so I want to take this last window and make the most of it.”
