PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) Paul Casey managed all the par 5s and shot a 5-under 66 on Friday to share the early 36-hole lead in his bid to become the first back-to-back winner of the Valspar Championship.

Casey holed a 30-foot eagle putt on the 599-yard fifth hole and had short birdie putts on the other par 5s at Innisbrook. He went bunker-to-bunker on his last hole for a bogey and dropped into a tie for the lead with Austin Cook (67).

They were at 6-under 136.
