A superb putting display from Jordan Spieth saw him card a five-under 65 and move into a four-way tie for the lead at halfway in the Northern Trust.

The American struck five consecutive birdies from the 10th hole to move to six under in Old Westbury, New York.

He is joined by Dustin Johnson (69), Rickie Fowler (66) and Venezuela’s Jhonattan Vegas (65), one shot ahead of Matt Kuchar (64) and Bubba Watson (68).

Rory McIlroy followed up his first-round 73 with a 68 to go to one over.

England’s Justin Rose, who carded a second successive 68, is one of three players on four under, along with American first-round leader Russell Henley (72) and Spain’s Jon Rahm (68).

Another Englishman, Paul Casey, is on three under after also carding 68 in the first of the PGA Tour’s four FedEx Cup play-off events.

Made in Denmark: England's Steve Webster leads by one shot

Steve Webster

Made in Denmark leaderboard after round two
-8 S Webster (Eng); -7 SSP Chawrasia (Ind), D Horsey (Eng), M Warren (Sco), P Dunne (Ire); -6 W Ormsby (NZ), B Hebert (Fra), J Suri (USA), N Elvira (Spa), A Wu (Chn), R Rock (Eng), L Jensen (Den)
Selected others:-5 C Paisley (Eng), J Daly (US); -4 M Wallace, J Parry, A Rai (all Eng), S Manley (Wal); -3 R Finch, B Evans, T Lewis (all Eng); -2 M Kaymer (Ger)

Steve Webster will take a one-shot lead into the weekend at the Made in Denmark event as he aims for his first European Tour title in 10 years.

The Englishman lost his playing privileges last season after being an ever-present for 20 years.

Webster, 42, almost did not take part at Himmerland this week after his grandmother had a fall last weekend, but his father convinced him to play.

He followed up an opening 64 with a 70 in windy conditions to go eight under.

Webster leads a quartet comprising England’s David Horsey, Scot Marc Warren, Ireland’s Paul Dunne and India’s SSP Chawrasia.

“I have to be honest and say I haven’t been thinking too much about the golf this week,” he told the European Tour’s website.
