Furyk wasn't the only golfer to make a big move in the right direction. Bubba Watson climbed nine spots after shooting a 66, and the 67s that Dustin Johnson and Carl Pettersson shot helped both of them move into the top 10.

Here's the top five after round two:

1. Jim Furyk (-7)
2. Justin Rose (-6)
T3. Bubba Watson (-5)
T3. Bo Van Pelt (-5)
T5. Dustin Johnson (-4)
T5. Matt Kuchar (-4)

If the tournament were to end with the conclusion of today's round, Rory McIlroy would win the FedExCup title.
