Charles Howell III reflects on grabbing a share of the early lead at the John Deere Classic

Patrick Rodgers took a small step towards following in the footsteps of Tiger Woods after building a two-shot lead at the John Deere Classic.

The American is also a three-time runner-up, most recently in 2014. Howell had a 69 as Americans take up 19 of the top 20 spots on the leaderboard.

Sixth-ranked Feng, seeking her second major crown after the 2012 LPGA Championship, had two runs of three consecutive birdies to seize command at the third major championship of the LPGA season.

The 26-year-old is second on the current standby list, meaning two qualified players must withdraw to grant his entry.

Zach Johnson and Charles Howell III are three back at 10-under 132.

Danny Lee's hopes of qualifying for the British Open will come down to luck after pulling out of the latest PGA Tour event in IL.

Rodgers drained five birdies in one seven-hole stretch before finishing with a bogey on his last hole of the day, the par-four ninth. The pair shot a combined 61 on the back nine on Friday (front nine on the course) and stand clear of the rest of the field.

Woods went on to win 79 PGA Tour events but Rodgers is still stuck on zero, with a second-place in 2015 his best result in 77 starts. The former U.S. Junior Amateur victor made seven straight birdies beginning on the par-3 16th (his seventh), the most in a row on the PGA Tour this season.
