HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Jason Day is behind during a tip in a bid for his third PGA Tour pretension in a month.

Coming off a unsatisfactory Masters, a top-ranked Day shot a 2-under 69 on Friday during a RBC Heritage to share a second-round lead with Kevin Chappell and Charley Hoffman.

Chappell and Hoffman shot 68s for a second true day to compare Day during 6-under 136..

Luke Donald, tied for a first-round lead after a 66, was a cadence behind along with Russell Knox and Patton Kizzire. Donald had a 71. Knox shot a 65, a best turn of a week. Kizzire had a 68.

Past contest champion Matt Kuchar surfaced a organisation during 4 underneath after a 71.

Day has won dual of a past 3 times he’s entered, starting with a one-shot feat over Chappell a month ago in a Arnold Palmer Invitational. Day followed that with a feat during a WCG-Dell Match Play and was a clever choice to trip on his initial immature coupler final week during Augusta National. Instead, Day tied for 10th and was never truly partial of a play in Jordan Spieth’s late fall and Danny Willett’s triumph.

Now, Day is fighting off a tired and anticipating success again during Harbour Town Golf Links.

“I felt like we was kind of punch dipsomaniac a small bit,” he pronounced of Thursday’s start. “But came out currently a lot some-more warning and on tip of it.”

That’s bad news for a rest of a margin given Day has shown there aren’t many who can compare him when he’s personification like this.

“I might be a small bit mentally fatigued, though it’s not an excuse,” he said. “I need to get out there and strike a shots and focus.”

Day strike a shots he indispensable during a many essential times.

Starting on No. 10 a shot behind leaders Donald and Branden Grace, Day could not get going in a chilly, damp conditions. He kick-started a turn with a birdie on a wind-swept, beacon 18th, rolling in a 10-footer.

Birdies on a second and third changed him on top. When he fell a cadence behind Chappell with a spook on a par-5 fifth – Day strike his expostulate out of end – he recovered with a birdie on No. 6.

Day felt a weight of a past few weeks of winning golf on a fifth immature as he lined adult a 4-foot putt indispensable to extent a repairs from his bad drive. That’s when he channeled a mindset he’s had given final summer when he won a PGA Championship.

“Moments like that where we get to a violation point, where we go, ‘OK, I’m starting to remove concentration now.’ Because we was personification great, though it went out of bounds. we can’t consider about it. I’ve only got to keep pulling on.”

Chappell’s pulling on, too.

He has warranted some-more than $1.4 million in 11 events this year, a bulk from dual runner-up finishes. Chappell’s best display in his 9 other tournaments? A tie for 26th during a Northern Trust Open.

“My diversion didn’t go anywhere,” Chappell said. “I’m still on form and unequivocally vehement to be here and unequivocally vehement about where things are at.”

Hoffman, who hold a 54-hole lead here in 2013, had a restraining birdie on a formidable par-4 eighth hole, afterwards scrambled for standard from a hunger straw when his expostulate on No. 9 landed nearby a sell tent.

“Once we get in a lead, we can’t let up, you’ve got to keep creation birdies,” Hoffman said. “That’s what Tiger did so good during a early 2000s and that’s what I’m going to try and do on a weekend.”

DIVOTS: Several players withdrew Friday. Harris English left before his turn began, citing a wrist injury. Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey withdrew given of a reduce behind damage after personification 11 holes and good in front of a cut line during even-par. Two-time heart transplant target Erik Compton also left after 9 holes. … New pro Bryson DeChambeau continued to be a discerning investigate on a PGA Tour, sharpened a 69 to mount only 3 shots off a lead during 3 under. DeChambeau, a NCAA and U.S. Amateur champion final year, incited pro this week. … Jason Bohn rallied for a 69 and done a cut in his initial contest given his heart conflict during a Honda Classic in February. “I put a small highlight on a aged ticker today, so that’s good,” Bohn said. … Among those blank a 2-over cut were Paul Casey, who finished fourth final week during a Masters.
