Miami, FL ( - Dustin Johnson, Hunter Mahan and Matt Kuchar all carded 2-over 74s on Friday and they share the lead after two rounds at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Those three were joined atop the leaderboard at 1-under-par 143 by fellow American Patrick Reed, who carded a 3-over 75 at windy Doral.

Jamie Donaldson had the low round of the day with his 2-under 70. That helped him climb into a tie for fifth at even-par 144. He stands alongside Graeme McDowell (71), Francesco Molinari (75) and Rory McIlroy (74).

Zach Johnson (75) and Bubba Watson (72) share ninth place at 1-over 145, and they are one stroke clear of Jason Dufner (77), Charl Schwartzel (76), Brandt Snedeker (73), Chris Kirk (71), Harris English (77) and Hyung-Sung Kim (74).

The first and second rounds were both completed on Friday. The first round had a long weather delay on Thursday and was ultimately suspended due to darkness.

Both rounds saw scores soar on Friday as the wind gusted well over 20 mph. The second round alone saw over 100 golf balls find water.
