SILVIS, Ill. -- Zach Johnson has evolved into one of the most consistent players the John Deere Classic ever has seen. Johnson put together another steady round Friday, maintaining a share of the lead despite standout efforts from rookie Patrick Reed and Lucas Glover. Johnson, the defending champion, shot a 5-under 66 to join Reed and Glover atop the leaderboard at 12-under 130 following second-round play. "(It) was a day of just hanging in there and letting things come. But I like the fact that I don't have to be perfect and I can still play here," Johnson said. Reed shot a 63 in the morning session, just one year after missing the cut at TPC Deere Run. Glover finished a shot better at 9 under on Friday. Australia's Matt Jones is a shot back at 11 under. Troy Matteson leads a pack at 10 under, while three-time winner Steve Stricker is among those contending at 9 under. Given how well Johnson has played this course of late, it could take a spectacular weekend to beat him. Johnson has shot 18 consecutive rounds in the 60s at Deere Run -- largely by avoiding big mistakes and scrambling out of small ones -- and his ninth bogey-free round Friday was a tournament record. "I'm just comfortable. I'm comfortable with every tee shot. I'm comfortable with every wind, and clearly I'm comfortable on the greens," Johnson said.
