Greensboro: Arjun Atwal landed two eagles, one each on both the front and back nines, but still managed only a modest one-under 69 to drop to the 22nd spot after the second round of the Wyndham Championships golf tournament.
With a two-day total of five-under 135, Atwal dropped from tied eighth to tied 22nd position.
Jimmy Walker played very steady but effective golf to shoot an eight-under 62, on Friday, and moved to the top of the leaderboard at 12-under.
Atwal, teeing off from the 10th bogeyed the 12th, but eagled the 15th. He once again lapsed into errors with back-to-back bogeys on 17th and 18th. He birdied the third, eagled the fourth and seemed on a good run but then bogeyed the fifth and settled for pars thereafter.
Defending champion Webb Simpson was a stroke behind after a 63, while first-round leader Carl Pettersson (68), Tim Clark (67), Sergio Garcia (63) and rookie Harris English (64) were 10-under. Tim Herron matched the tournament record with a 61, but was still seven strokes behind.
Play was halted for an hour and a quarter late in the day by thunderstorms.
Walker, who began the day four strokes back, had eight birdies in compiling one of the best two-day scores in the event's history.
Only Pettersson at 125 in 2008 was better than Walker through 36 holes at Sedgefield Country Club.
Pettersson, who shot a 62 on Thursday while playing in the morning, found the Sedgefield course tougher in the afternoon.
The local resident and member of the country club's board of directors had two bogeys in a three-hole span midway his round, then came on strong with consecutive birdies on 9-10 and an eagle on the par-5 15th.
Pettersson broke his driver on the next-to-last hole of the first round, used his backup driver yesterday and will stick with it the rest of the weekend.
