Medinah, Illinois:

Seventh-alternate Billy Andrade, who three days ago wasn't expecting to be playing this week, shot a 3-under 69 and claimed a share of the lead on Friday after the second round of the 88th US PGA Championship. Andrade made a 30-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to put him atop the leaderboard with Henrik Stenson of Sweden, Luke Donald of England and fellow American Tim Herron at 8-under 136 - all of them in the lead for the first time in a major. Tiger Woods, scrambling for pars early before taking advantage of the par 5s, finished off his round of 68 with a 20-foot birdie putt that left him one shot behind, along with U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy and the resurgent Davis Love III. Phil Mickelson was all over Medinah, but escaped the rough on No. 18 with an approach that barely cleared a bunker and hopped onto the green to 15 feet for a birdie that gave him a 71 and put him at 4-under 140.
