Joining Johnson in a tie for second at 10-under 130 are Chris Kirk (67) - who began the day with an eagle at the par-4 10th and ended it with a bogey at the par-5 ninth - Tom Hoge (65) and journeyman John Peterson (64).

Kirk gave chase in the afternoon, opening his round with an eagle at the 10th hole and closing within one stroke before settling for a three-under 67 that concluded with a bogey at the par-five ninth.

Kirk grabbed an eagle at the 10th on his way to a three-under 67, while two-time major victor Johnson matched that round and like Harman, sank an eagle on the ninth.

He's also aiming to put himself in line for berth on the United States team for the Ryder Cup in France, after missing out on a Presidents Cup spot previous year. "That one definitely stung", he said. "I'm just going to show up tomorrow and try to hit the first tee shot best you can and go from there".
