Dustin Johnson might not have brought his A-game to East Lake so far this week, but the big-hitting American still leads by one stroke with two rounds to go at the Tour Championship.
Johnson, who started the week at 10-under par in the staggered start, added a second-round 70 to his opening 67 to move to 13-under par and one stroke clear of Sungjae Im, who posted a superb 64.

Incredibly, Johnson found just two fairways on Saturday as he exchanged four birdies with four bogeys in a lacklustre round.
Xander Schauffele moved up to 11-under par following a 65, with Justin Thomas back on 10-under par after a 71.
US PGA champion Collin Morikawa (65) lurks at 9-under par alongside England's No.1 player Tyrrell Hatton (66) and Jon Rahm, who posted a dismal 74.

Rory McIlroy, who became a father for the first time earlier this week, made a mess of the par-5 18th when topping his ball out of the heavy rough and into the water en route to a bogey-six.
McIlroy is bidding to become the first player to win the FedEx Cup three times but he has it all to do at 8-under par with 36 holes to go.
