Haas birdies No. 17 to claim lead

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. -- Phil Mickelson had gone 67 holes without a three-putt. Now he's had two in a row and no longer owns a share of the lead at the Northern Trust Open.

That distinction belongs to Bill Haas for the second time on Sunday. Haas hit a massive 3-wood from 295 yards out and two-putted the 17th hole from 16 feet for birdie to tie Mickelson and Bradley -- then minutes later led alone when both made bogeys at No. 15.

Mickelson's three-putt came from 71 feet, as he missed a 9-footer to save par. Bradley, on the other hand, had found the fairway bunker off the tee and hit his second shot short of the greenside bunker before missing the 7-footer to save.

Dustin Johnson, who is playing with Haas, also birdied the 17th from 2 feet, to move into a tie for second with Bradley and Mickelson.
