Patrick Reed continues to lead the Humana Challenge with two straight 63s but there are plenty of other golfers ready to relieve him of the lead if he falters on the weekend.

Here's the top five:

1. Patrick Reed (-18)
2. Brendon Todd (-16)
3. Ryan Palmer (-15)
4. Charley Hoffman (-14)
T5. Bill Haas (-13)
T5. James Driscoll (-13)

You can see the full leaderboard here but here's a look at how some other stars in the Humana Challenge fared in the second round.

Bill Haas (Round 2: 6 under, Tournament: 13 under, T5) -- Haas is kind of sneaking his way up the leaderboard and has only made one bogey all week. Here's a look at a nice birdie he had on Friday.

Zach Johnson (Round 2: 4 under, Tournament: 11 under, T8) -- Johnson continues to roll. He's locked in on what he's doing and little else as he noted after his 68 on Friday.

"Well essentially you got to assume the scoreboard's irrelevant. Just get to the tee, play that hole for what it is. That's all you can do."

Keegan Bradley (Round 2: 6 under, Tournament: 9 under, T22) -- Bradley is lingering a bit but will need a big third round to be in the mix on Sunday. He said he was pretty excited about his hole-in-one on Friday, though.

"Yeah, 176 yards, I just hit a little baby 7?iron. Zach hit the hole right before me, so it was good to make a hole?in?one. I hit it really good. It was right at it, sure enough, it went in."

Brandt Snedeker (Round 2: 8 under, Tournament: 8 under, T34) -- Went out in 31 and ended with an 8-under 64 to shoot 79 spots up the leaderboard.

Rickie Fowler (Round 2: 1 under, Tournament: 5 under, T74) -- Fowler is now 13 shots back and will try and play the rest of the weekend as a warmup to the tournament one of his big sponsors backs next weekend at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Webb Simpson (Round 2: 2 under, Tournament: 5 under, T74) -- Simpson could only muster three birdies on Friday and is sliding the wrong way down the leaderboard (he dropped 26 spots on Friday).
