FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — PGA Tour rookie Brice Garnett opened with an eagle Friday on way to a 4-under 66 and the second-round lead at Colonial.

At 7-under 133, Garnett had a one-stroke lead over Robert Streb and Chris Stroud, who made five putts from more than 20 feet in a 64. Streb shot 68.

Adam Scott, playing as No. 1 in the world for the first time, shot a 68 to get to 1 under. He has made the cut his last 34 PGA Tour events, the longest active streak.

Matt Kuchar, ranked No. 4 in the world, had a chance to move to the top with a victory. But he missed the cut by a stroke, shooting 72-70.

First-round leader Dustin Johnson had a 70 drop into a tie for fourth at 5 under.
