Toms shot a bogey-free 66.

Tim Petrovic briefly led the field after making birdie on No 14, but bogeyed three his last four holes for a 71 and a finish two out of the lead, tied with Kirk Triplett (68).

Another shot back are Brandt Jobe (66), Paul Goydos (70) and Miguel Angel Jimenez (73), whose only birdie of the day came on a chip-in from the side of the 15th green.
