Dustin Johnson is very happy with his game at the halfway stage of the RBC Heritage but is hoping for a bit more joy on the dance floor.

World number one Dustin Johnson (13/5 fav – RBC Heritage Outright) is hoping to make some good putts over the weekend after keeping himself in contention at the halfway stage of the RBC Heritage.

Johnson, who finished tied-second at last week’s Masters, followed up his three-under-par 68 on day one by going one stroke better with a round of 67, taking him to -7 for the tournament.

The 34-year-old American made five birdies and one bogey on a rain-affected day to move to within two strokes of overnight leader Shane Lowry (6/1 Outright), who still has two holes of his second round to play after darkness suspended play.

Asked about his game plan for the next two rounds, Johnson, who is chasing a 21st PGA Tour title, says he is just looking to keep the momentum going while hoping to get hot with the flat stick. £100 Cash

“Just keep doing exactly what I’ve been doing,” he was quoted as saying by the PGA Tour’s official website. “I’m swinging well, placing the ball where I want to. Hopefully, I can roll in a few putts over the weekend.”

American Trey Mullinax is in sole possession of second on -8, one shot off the pace, after a round of 68 on Friday and he is priced at 16/1 to break his duck on the US circuit.

Emiliano Grillo is sitting alongside Johnson in a share of third on -7 and the Argentine, who signed for four-under-par 67, is 16/1 to land his first title since the 2015 Open.

World number 30 Ian Poulter leads the way for England on -5 after he also went round in 67 and he is priced at 22/1 to lift the trophy.

Odds subject to change.
