Justin Thomas and Ryan Moore produced final-hole birdies to lead at the halfway mark of the SBS Tournament of Champions. The American duo tops a congested leaderboard at 12 under after shooting six-under par 67s in the second round at Kapalua Resort in Hawaii on Friday.

Thomas, who has two top-four finishes – including a win – in his past three starts, mixed seven birdies with a bogey. Like Moore, whose only blemish came at the par-three second hole, he birdied the 18th.

The pair is a shot ahead of Patrick Reed, the American who surged into contention with a 65, and overnight leader Jimmy Walker (70). The big guns are still sitting well back. World No. 1 Jason Day (69) is tied for 11th at seven under, with Dustin Johnson (70) alongside him.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth got on a roll with five straight birdies in the middle of his round, but a triple bogey at the 17th hurt him. The American is at five under. Jason Dufner (68) is outright fifth at 10 under, a shot ahead of Japan's Hideki Matsuyama (68). Tony Finau (68), Fabian Gomez (68), Daniel Berger (70) and Jim Herman (71) are a shot further back.
