How much easier are the conditions Friday at PGA West? Consider this: Eight players failed to break 80 in the second round -- and seven of those players are at even par or better today.
Former Auburn standout Will Claxton continues to battle PGA TOUR veteran Matt Jones for the overall lead at PGA West. Both are 11 under, with 2011 PGA TOUR rookie Daniel Summerhays at 10 under.
There several former PGA TOUR winners battling to get into that all-important top 25:
: 2006 International, currently tied for ninth
Vaughn Taylor : Two-time Reno-Tahoe Open winner, currently tied for 15th
Brett Wetterich : 2006 HP Byron Nelson Championship winner, currently tied for 29th
Shaun Micheel: 2003 PGA Championship winner, currently tied for 29th
