Keegan Bradley smoothed an 8-under-par 31-32=63 in his second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to move the 36-hole clubhouse lead to 12-under 130.

Perhaps inspired by friend and mentor, Phil Mickelson, Bradley circled an eagle and seven birdies to offset a lone bogey at TPC Scottsdale today. His longest conversion of the round measured 20'10" for birdie at the 11th hole, but it was a sick run near the end of the his round that jumps off the page. He linked four consecutive birdies beginning at the fifth hole. Their distances in order were as follows: 12'3", 14'6", 17'3" and 10'3". It's worth mentioning that he opened with a bogey-free 67 that included four birdies. This is his first notable success since sharing fourth place at the 2013 lid-lifter at Kapalua. He followed that performance with a T49 at Waialae and a missed cut last week at Torrey Pines.

Danny Lee conjured up a 4-under-par 31-36=67 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 13-under 200, good for a three-shot lead over Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler.

Lee was in the final threesome with overnight leader James Hahn and Fowler. He began the day one back of Hahn (joint second) after opening in 67-66. The 25-year-old went out in bogey-free 4-under, circling three straight on Nos. 2-4 (from between three and 21 feet) and adding a 39'6" bomb at the par-4 eighth. He dropped shots on 11 (three-putt from 64'0") and 15 (water ball) but erased them with birdies at 13 and 17. This is Lee's first career 54-hole lead on TOUR in his 110th pro start, and he's been buoyed to that spot by leading the field in driving accuracy at 83.33 percent (35/42) and strokes gained: putting with a cumulative 5.760.

Phil Mickelson smoothed a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a three-day total of 8-under 205, up 31 places on the live leaderboard to T6. UPDATE: With play completed on day three, Mickelson sits solo sixth, five adrift of 54-hole leader Danny Lee.

Mickelson was in the third threesome off No. 10 tee and began Moving Day T37 (2-under) after 69-71. He opened with five straight two-putt pars before breaking the ice from 15'8" at the par-5 15th and added a second circle from 10'11" for birdie-3 at 18 to turn 2-under. The three-time WMPO champ went back-to-back rolling in a 12-footer at the par-4 first before ringing-up par breakers at Nos. 3, 7 and 9, the latter two from 22'3" and 29'0", respectively. Mickelson striped 10 (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation registering 1.667 putts per GIR.

Scottsdale resident Bryce Molder fired a 7-under-par 31-33=64 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 9-under 204, up 33 spots on the live leaderboard to T4 and good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Molder is in a two-way T4, four swings back of 54-hole leader Danny Lee.

Two-tee set-up for the third round (69 players) and Molder was in the first threesome off No. 10 with J.B. Holmes, who shot 68, and Seung-Yul Noh (81). He began Moving Day eight adrift on 2-under (T37) after opening in 67-73. The 37-year-old striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation and at last check, a 3.473 tally in strokes gained: putting. Molder circled eight birdies against a lone bogey at the par-3 seventh (failed sand save). That bogey-4 was sandwiched by four birdie-3s from between 15 and 23 feet, including a walk-off from 18'2" at the par-4 ninth. His 64 is low round of the tournament thus far and a personal best in 29 career rounds at TPC Scottsdale.

Alex Cejka (neck) withdrew prior to the start of the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

This is Cejka's 18th mid-tournament WD in 314 career starts, the last was at the 2015 PGA Championship after a first-round 4-over 76. He was high-up on the 36-hole leaderboard at TPC Scottsdale sitting T13 after 70-68, and it was also the first time he's made the cut here in his last six tries, so the departure has to be at least somewhat concerning. We'll find out in short order, as the 45-year-old is in the published field at next week's AT&T Pebble Beach.

After three straight birdies on Nos. 3-5, FedExCup leader Kevin Kisner was 3-under total but played his last 13 holes in birdie-less 5-over and at 2-over 144, missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open by two strokes.

Course form (CUT/2015, T55/2012) won this week. Kisner's season form showed first- and second-round scoring averages both at 66.67, so those will suffer a bit after 71 and 73 (33-40) in Scottsdale. His 36-hole stats show T90 in greens in regulation and T94 in strokes gained: putting en route to six birdies (three in each round), against eight bogeys. Joining Kisner on the bench are: 143- Kevin Streelman ... 144- Justin Thomas ... 145- 2007 champ Aaron Baddeley; David Lingmerth; 2010 champ Hunter Mahan; Tony Finau; Jason Dufner ... 146- Graham DeLaet; Jamie Lovemark; Fabian Gomez; Smylie Kaufman ... 154- Jack Maguire (pro debut).

The second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open resumed at 8:00 a.m. MT on Saturday with four players (of 130) needing to complete their respective rounds. Approximate third-round tee times will be between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

Bo Van Pelt is T9 with two holes left to play in his second round. He had just missed a 3'7" near-gimme at the par-3 16th when play was suspended on Friday due to darkness. If he were to stay inside the top 10 after 36 holes, it would be the first time he's accomplished that since the 2014 Barclays where he was T6 at the midpoint (after opening in 6-under 65 and 71). Last season, the 40-year-old missed the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time since their inception in 2007, so he's playing this season by burning his Top 50 Career Money List exemption ($20,411,496). Interestingly enough, he's already dropped to No. 54 on the list after missing his first three cuts in 2015-16.

Danny Willett continued his birdie blitz at Emirates GC with a 7-under-par 31-34=65 taking him into a one-shot lead after round three of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

The World No. 20 jumped to the top of the pile after shooting his second straight 65 via a round containing six birdies and an eagle. At 16-under 200 he leads by one from 2012 winner Rafa Cabrera-Bello (-15), with England's Andy Sullivan (-14) a further shot in arrears. Joost Luiten (-13) and Haydn Porteous (-12) round out the top five. Willett circled birdies at at 3, 4, 7, 8 and 10 and, after a bogey at 12, nailed an eagle-3 at the par-5 13th. A final birdie at 17 was enough to secure the 54-hole lead. The Englishman split 9 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. He was also 2-for-2 in sand saves and is 4-for-4 in that category so far this week. "I kept the ball under fantastic control with some crosswinds and did everything right really. I had couple of hiccups in there today where it could have been a little different but I kept the head on and kept moving forward," said Willett, who will be chasing a fourth European Tour title on Sunday.

Danny Lee crafted a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 9-under 133, tied second with Rickie Fowler and one back of 36-hole leader James Hahn.

Lee chased 67 with today's seven-birdie against two-bogey effort in R2. He split 12 (of 14) fairways for a second straight day and leads the field thru 36 holes in driving accuracy (24/28) at a stellar 85.71 percent clip. The 25-year-old, who's never made the cut here in three previous tries, landed just 11 greens, but posted an eye-catching 1.545 putts per GIR. His split featured three birdies that traveled between 18 and 24 feet and circled three straight on Nos. 15-17 on his outward half.
Feb 5 - 9:18 PM

The second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open was suspended at 6:12 p.m. MT due to darkness (stranding four players) and will resume on Saturday at 8:00 a.m. Approximate R3 tee times are between 9-11 a.m.

No frost delays today like in yesterday's lid-lifter but all 130 players still couldn't get around. Overnight tri-leader Shane Lowry once again beat the horn, back-pedaling a bit with a 1-under-par 33-37=70 in R2. The 28-year-old was a steady 2-under on his loop thru 16 holes with four birdies against two bogeys, but then swallowed double bogey-6 on the drivable par-4 17th after putting his approach long and into the water. He responded with a birdie-3 from 3'7" at the par-4 18th, his fifth birdie on just 11 greens in regulation. Lowry's 7-under 135 is three adrift of 36-hole leader James Hahn.
Feb 5 - 8:41 PM

A trio lead after 18 holes with 65s, including Rickie Fowler, who chased with 3-under-par 34-34=68 on day two of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 9-under 133, down one spot on the day and into a two-way T2 with Danny Lee.

TPC Scottsdale's previous Friday attendance record (123K) was shattered with 160,415 packing the grounds. Fowler backed-up his pre-tourney claim of loving the atmosphere opening in 65-68 to trail 36-hole leader James Hahn by one. He sleepwalked thru his first 12 holes on Friday, circling just one (two-putt) birdie at the par-5 third and 11 pars. But, as he's been known to do (see THE PLAYERS), he awoke to add birdies at 13, 15 and 18. The walk-off 3 at the par-4 18th, from 3'10", was a bounce back from a sloppy three-putt from 26'5" at the drivable par-4 17th, his only dropped shot on the round.
Feb 5 - 8:23 PM

James Hahn hung a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 on TPC Scottsdale in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and at 10-under 132, is the 36-hole leader.

In his 65th career start, Hahn won his maiden (and only) TOUR title last February at the Northern Trust Open. At Riviera CC, he was T11 thru 36 holes (66-74), and closed in 69-69, eventually winning a three-man playoff. He's in the top spot after two days in Scottsdale, one better than overnight tri-leader Rickie Fowler and Danny Lee. The 34-year-old went off No. 10 tee and holed-out from 23 yards for birdie-3 to kick things off. He added a 32'2" bomb at the par-5 13th and a six-footer at the 15th for birdie-4. Hahn scrambled for pars on 16 and 17 to turn 3-under. He circled three after the break at 2, 3 and 6 (each from inside seven feet) to complete his scoring. The UC-Berkeley product missed five greens but saved par each time and ties Scott Piercy for low lap of the day.
