HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Top-ranked Jason Day shot a 2-under 69 on Friday in the RBC Heritage for a share of the second-round lead with Kevin Chappell and Charley Hoffman.

Chappell and Hoffman shot 68s for the second straight day at Harbour Town to join Day at 6-under 136.

Day has won two of his past three PGA Tour events. The Australian opened on the 10th tee and birdied the difficult, wind-swept lighthouse hole at No. 18. He added birdies on the second, third and sixth holes.

Day acknowledged fighting through fatigue after a grueling Masters last week, where he finished 10th.

Luke Donald, tied for the first-round lead after a 66, was a stroke back along with Russell Knox and Patton Kizzire. Donald had a 71, Knox shot 65, and Kizzire 68.
