A chip-in eagle on the last hole has Shane Lowry just five off the lead going into today's day three at golf's Honda Classic.
A second-round 66 in Florida means the reigning Open champion reached halfway at seven-under-par.
"I said let's go up there and chip this one in," the Offaly man said of the finish to his second round.
"But I had a bit of a mud ball on my second shot so I was trying to be a little bit clever and obviously not hit in the water and try and leave myself in a good spot, so I was kind of aiming over there toward that bunker and, yeah, it was a straightforward enough chip.
"I was nice and aggressive with it and got it to the hole and thankfully it went in and it puts me in a great position going into the weekend."

Lowry enjoyed an 8th place finish at the Players' Championship last weekend and he's feeling positive about his game.
"Just kind of coming on from last week, a good week, a bit of confidence. Coming out here, a course I like playing, I knew it was going to be tough, so, yeah, I just kind of, although the scoring is not playing as tough as it normally does, but I just kind of, a little bit of confidence goes a long way with me.
"And I didn't drive the ball great yesterday but every other part of my game was pretty good and I felt like I drove it a little bit better today and hopefully I can, I think there's a, like a northerly wind coming in the weekend, so it will be interesting out there, but I'm looking forward to it."
Back-to-back rounds of 64 have made Aaron Wise is the man to catch on 12-under.
Graeme McDowell and Padraig Harrington both missed the cut.
