BETHESDA, Md. (AP) -- Two Australians are tied for the lead after the morning rounds on Day 2 of the Quicken Loans National.

Marc Leishman and newcomer Oliver Goss are at 6 under after each shot 66 during the second round Friday on the Blue Course at Congressional Country Club.

Leishman has one PGA Tour win. Goss is playing in his second tournament as a pro and was the low amateur at the Masters in April.

First-round leader Greg Chalmers has an afternoon tee time after a 66 Thursday.

Tournament host Tiger Woods also tees off in the afternoon. He shot a 3-over 74 in the first round in his return to competition following back surgery.
