Stronger than Oak Jason Dufner / Getty Images Jason fired a near record breaking second round at Oak Hill of -7 under pat 63 on the par 70 lay-out. to lead by two shots at -9 under par. On the last green he stood a 12 ft putt away from a shot at the lowest score in the 153 years of championship golf, sadly his effort did not even reach the hole; "Probably the worst putt I hit of the day, which is a little disappointing, but all in all, it's a 63, and name on top of the leaderboard. So that's a great position to be playing from. It's tough when you're chasing history, you will be the first one to do something. I don't think I've been the first to do anything in my life. So it was a little nerve-racking for a Friday. It's usually the pressure you might feel toward the end of the tournament." Jason has two-shot lead over Masters Champion Adam Scott, Jim Furyk and Matt Kuchar, who are all tied at -7 under par. Adam is full of confidence; "I think the platform has never been better for me to go on and win multiple Majors. I guess you've got to take the confidence and form of winning a Major and run with it. I was hungry before the Masters and I might even have a bigger appetite after it. It might be greedy, but I feel like this is my time to get everything I want out of my career and I'm going to keep pushing until I do." Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose are a shot further back at -6 under par for the championship, Justin is looking forward to the challenge of the next two days; "I sit here today really relishing the opportunity on the weekend to try to win another Major with no hesitation, which there may have been a few years ago because you don't know how it's going to pan out or how you're going to deal with it. It's wonderful to be in this situation right now, talking about having done it, talking about feeling like you can win more, believing in yourself and not talking about how I hope it could happen this week. So I think that alone makes it easier." The cut was made at +3 a total of 143, this is the lowest at the PGA Championship since 2001 at Atlanta Athletic Club, both Rory McIlroy (even) and Tiger Woods (+1) safely made it, but are a long way from the lead. Tiger admitted he will need a really low round tomorrow to get back on track; "Obviously, I'm going to have to put together a really good weekend this golf course is pretty soft. It's definitely gettable. Got to hit the ball in play and keep the ball near the hole so I can be aggressive with my putts."
