JEJU, South Korea (AP) – Luke List fired a 5-under 67 Friday to take a one-stroke lead after the second round of the CJ Cup, the first U.S. PGA Tour regular-season event in South Korea.

List carded five birdies, including one on the par-5 18th, to move to 9 under.

Lucas Glover offset a pair of bogeys with seven birdies for a 67 and is in a share of second with Scott Brown, who had a 70.

A day after firing a 63 for a first-round lead, Justin Thomas carded a 74 to slip into a share of fourth with Cameron Smith (68) at 7 under.

Jason Day also struggled with the conditions en route to a 74 to fall back to 24th at 2 under.

Local favorite Seung Yul Noh carded five birdies and closed with an eagle for a 65.
