American Patrick Reed has a three-shot lead after the second round of the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

Reed hit a second consecutive six-under 66 lead on 12-under, three free from countryman Gary Woodland.

Tiger Woods, who organizes the tournament, also has a 66 card to achieve a shared fifth place in five out of five.

He is a shot behind the Swedish Henrik Stenson and the Spanish Jon Rahm, and directly with fellow Americans Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler.

Justin Rose of England is the only British player in the 18-strong field and is eighth in five-under.

Leader Reed said, "I feel good." I feel that the game is much clearer than earlier this year.

"I give myself opportunities and how the putter works."

The event is being held for the benefit of Woods' charity.

The 15-time big winner, who reached level par 72 in the first round, said: "Yesterday was tough with the wind, especially with the putts.

" But today was it slightly less windy, the ball flew and I got afterwards. "
