Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel are nestled inside the top five at the Deutsche Bank Championship following six under par 65 second rounds - the joint lowest of the day.
Oosthuizen produced a stellar performance to go second on 11 under, one shot off the lead.
The highlight of his round was undoubtedly his eagle at the par-four fourth, his 13th.
Schwartzel made an electric start to his immaculate second round, birdieing four of his first five holes. He is tied fifth at TPC Boston on nine under.
Lee Westwood birdied the ninth, his 18th, to finish the round level par. The world number four is tied 25th on three under.
At the Omega European Masters, Joost Luiten fired a sensational 63 to move into the top ten on seven under.
The flying Dutchman is joined in tied eighth at Crans-sur-Sierre by Fredrik Andersson Hed, Romain Wattel and David Howell, who carded rounds of 67, 68 and 69 respectively.
"Seven under was a good day," Luiten wrote on Twitter. "I played well from tee to green and I holed some nice putts out there. I need another low one on Sunday."
Simon Dyson is tied 17th on six under after finishing three under for the day. Tommy Fleetwood is three under, Gregory Bourdy and Branden Grace are two under, while Richard Finch is one under.
The conditions in Switzerland were difficult to navigate. The weather was cold, while play was suspended for more than an hour in the morning because of thick fog.
It was a disappointing day for Chris Wood, who was forced to withdraw from the tournament because of a back complaint.
"I had to withdraw," he wrote on Twitter. "My back went during my second warm up. Standing around in the cold conditions this morning has done me in."
