    Huge crowds lined the course for Round Two of the 2014 Travelers Championship on Friday.

    At one point, tournament officials had to shut down the main parking lot because it was full. Fans were directed to a satellite lot on site for part of the afternoon.

    The perfect weather in Cromwell helped draw the big crowds, and also helped some players move up the leaderboard on Friday.

    Scott Langley shot a 65 in Round 2, to bring him to 11-under par for the tournament, one shot better than K.J. Choi, Michael Putnam and Harris English.

    Langley, who played in the final group on Sunday of the Memorial last month, said his goal this weekend is to keep his mind on his golf game, and not about his position on the leaderboard.

    "This weekend I'm not going to think about the possibilities. I'm not going to think about what it would mean to win. I'm not going to think about any of that stuff," Langley said after his round.

    Matt Kuchar, who is just four shots off the lead, said he likes playing at the TPC at River Highlands.

    "I really enjoy this course. This is a course I think all the players enjoy playing. It's a fun course, the last couple of holes, 15, 16, 17 and 18 are just exciting holes to play, fun holes to play," Kuchar said.

    Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia and Ryan Moore will are within striking distance of the lead when they take the course for Round 3 on Saturday.

    The cut was even par.

    Bubba Watson, the 2010 Travelers Championship winner, shot a 72 on Friday, but made the cut by one stroke.
