Henrik Stenson stretched his lead to four shots after a second-round 4-under 66 Friday at the Tour Championship.

Stenson, who won the Deutsche Bank Championship earlier during this year's FedEx Cup, is 10 under through two rounds. Adam Scott is in second place at 6 under followed by Jordan Spieth, who is solo third at 5 under.

As for World No. 1 and FedEx Cup points leader Tiger Woods? He started Friday's second round – literally, in the first group of the day – nine shots off the lead after a 73 filled with struggles. He followed with a 71, which was highlighted by both a 5-under performance through 13 holes and a late-hole collapse.

Woods now trails Stenson by 14 shots.
