Adam Scott fired a 6-under 65 Friday at Ridgewood Country Club to grab a share of the lead with Cameron Tringale at The Barclays.

Scott and Tringale, each at 8 under, lead Jim Furyk, Brendon Todd and Kevin Chappell by a shot.

Other highlights from Friday's second round included a 65 from Rory McIlroy and a shot from the grandstands by Phil Mickelson.

Here's how the day unfolded:

Update No. 30: 5:39 p.m. ET

Rory McIlroy birdies the par-5 17th and then just misses a birdie putt at the par-4 18th after waiting a while for Bubba Watson to take a drop near the grandstand. McIlroy finishes with a 6-under 65 and will enter Saturday at 3 under.

• • •

Update No. 29: 5:12 p.m. ET

Well, here's the video proof – Phil Mickelson did, in fact, hit a shot from the hospitality area Friday. He went on to make bogey at the par-4 fifth.

• • •

Update No. 28: 5:08 p.m. ET

Rory McIlroy, who is 5 under through 16 hole today and 2 under overall, is the first player to hit the par-5 17th green in two shots. Now, he'll have an eagle putt with a chance to get to 4 under.

Update No. 27: 5:04 p.m. ET

Adam Scott taps in a birdie at the par-4 18th to tie Cameron Tringale for the clubhouse lead at 8 under. Scott shot 6-under 66 today.

Also, in Scott's playing group, Rickie Fowler carded a 73, but will make the cut at 1 under.

• • •

Update No. 26: 5 p.m. ET

Phil Mickelson is 2 over through 17 holes today and faces a birdie putt at the par-4 ninth for the chance to get to 1 over. The cut is currently at even par, though 1 over is still a possibility.

The 7-footer drops and Mickelson is in at 1 over. Now the wait begins.

• • •

Update No. 25: 4:19 p.m. ET

Cameron Tringale drains a 12-footer for birdie at the par-4 seventh, his 16th hole, to take the lead at 8 under. Tringale started his round 3 over through three holes, but has six birdies and no bogeys since.

• • •

Update No. 24: 4:05 p.m. ET

Just when you thought you'd seen it all, Phil Mickelson goes and hits a shot from a hospitality deck. At the driveable par-4 fifth, Mickelson sent his tee shot long, left and into the grandstands. Only, instead of taking the drop, Mickelson walked up the stairs and wedged it off of the carpet.

The ball didn't find the green, instead sailing into a bunker, but it was still fun to watch. Mickelson went on to bogey the hole.

We'll post video as soon as we get it.
