Michael Kim and Andrew Putnam teamed to shoot a 3-under-par 69 on Friday to take the Zurich Classic lead in Avondale, La., into the weekend.

Matt Wallace shot a 2-under 70 Friday to take a one-stroke lead into the third round of the China Open golf tournament.

The pair shot 74 for a four-under total of 140, missing the cut by one stroke.

Kisner and Brown started the round one shot off the lead and made five birdies on the front nine.

The three-times major victor said they were mistakes that had been waiting to happen as he battled his swing for the entire round in the PGA Tour's only official team event.

"We definitely capitalized on our good shots", Putnam said.

"We held it together for a while and then it finally just came out".

"Well when you think about it, we want you to be inspired to make some more birdies", said Watson. "It's a tough day out there today".

"Obviously we didn't finish it off the way we wanted to [last year], so we're coming back for a little revenge this week", Kisner told Ryan Lavner of the Golf Channel.

Australian veterans Greg Chalmers and Cameron Percy combined to shoot a seven-under 65 to be 13 under in a tie for 24th, along with countryman Matt Jones and his American teammate Chad Campbell, who slid down the field after a 70.

Spieth and partner Ryan Palmer were lying at eight under heading into the last two holes, but they finished with back-to-back double bogeys after Spieth hit the water on 17 and 18.

Defending champions Smith and Blixt exited early, too, finishing at three-under 141 as the cutline of five-under claimed a string of marquee names.

However, Spieth and Thomas are both out of the running. "We both had a lot of good looks all day, and I had some good looks and then he made some good putts and I didn't have to putt it".

"Bad decision on the layup", he said. "I cost our team an opportunity, which really sucks given how hard we fought today. Feel good. In the right position, where we need to go". "So to get within - we were just talking - hopefully within three or four of the lead, you know, 4- or 5-under is probably doable in alternate shot depending on the weather, the wind". Reigning PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas and Bud Cauley missed the cut after their second 70.
