Still ahead is a final round at soggy Aronimink Golf Club that could take more than one day to complete because of rain in the forecast, along with 13 players within five shots of the lead.
"I hit it just as good (as the opening-round 62) and putted just as good, but nothing went in and that's the way it goes", a frustrated Woods said.
He also made it more hard on Woods, who again goes into a weekend have to catch up to the leaders. The four-time Major victor made six straight birdies from his ninth hole to go nine under and raise the possibility of shooting 59.
One day after a 62, Woods shot 70 and was five behind.
Hideki Matsuyama shot a 6-under 64 to land three shots off the pace in a four-way tie for third.
Justin Rose lipped out a birdie attempt on the 18th green Saturday, but his par was nonetheless good enough to earn him the solo 54-hole lead. He began the week 41 in the FedEx Cup Standings and now has a great chance to move into the top 30 and get back to East Lake.
Schauffele has been considered one of the odd men out in the Ryder Cup discussion, with captain Jim Furyk expected to pick Tony Finau when he announces the 12 and final spot Monday morning.
He had failed to break part in the opening round at 10 of his last 11 tournaments. "But they didn't go in today".

Kim reportedly complained about the USA negotiating in bad faith and regretted the doubts raised about his commitment to peace. But negotiations have made little progress, while signs North Korea has maintained work on its weapons have emerged.
Still, but for a few narrow misses with a putter that had been so steady Thursday, Woods would've drawn close to Schauffele.

But Woods made amends with a closing birdie at the par-five ninth, where he sank a seven-foot putt.
"I know the release point and I know how it swings and my body morphs into a position where it understands where it needs to be to release the putter, because I've hit hundreds of millions of putts with that thing".
Schauffele said he was on a mission, and the Ryder Cup was merely a byproduct.
The PGA Tour is off next week. "I always thought I was rather a clutch player coming down the stretch and this year has said otherwise". For someone like Bradley, getting to the Tour Championship would get him into all four majors next year.
His form had since tailed off and he acknowledged that long-hitting Tony Finau, who also had top-10s at the US and British Opens, was in pole position to grab the coveted spot.
