Anirban Lahiri produced another solid round of 3-under 67 to position himself at tied 11 at the midway stage of the Travelers Championship in Cromwell on Friday.

The 30-year-old Indian, still looking for his breakthrough win on the PGA Tour, is now 6-under 134 after 36 holes.

Lahiri, whose last win came in February 2015 at Hero Indian Open, had four birdies against one bogey. He hit better on the first day than the second, when the conditions were easier but the pin positions were tougher at the TPC River Highlands.

Brian Harman, who was third in 2015, shot a 4-under 66 to go with his first-round 64 to take the lead with 10-under 130. Russell Henley (65-66) and first round co-leader Zach Johnson (63-68) were tied at nine-under 131.

"I have generally hit it good the last two days, pretty solid, though I didn't drive it as well today. Yesterday, when I drove really well. But today I didn't hit it as close as I would have liked to, so there is some work to do with the wedges," Lahiri said.

Talking of the course, he added, "This course demands accuracy and if you can produce that, you can make a few birdies. It’s all about position play. Yesterday, I played well in difficult conditions, as the greens dried up in the afternoon. Today the conditions were easier, but pin positions were tougher, something that I didn't see last year."

Lahiri got his first birdie when he holed a 7-footer on fourth and a second one came his way on par-5 sixth, when he hit a nice second shot from 93 yards to seven feet and rolled it in.

On the seventh, he went into right rough and did not come out too well. He had a 23-footer for par, which he missed and had his only bogey of the day. He had two more birdies on the 13th and the 16th to make it 3-under 67.
