SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Phil Mickelson has found birdies a little more difficult to come by on Friday than he did in his first-round 60.
But he's just rolled in a 24-footer at the par-3 seventh hole to join his buddy, Keegan Bradley, at the top of the leaderboard at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Bradley is finished at that number after a second-round 63.
Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera is alone at 11 under after a 65 on Friday. But Brandt Snedeker and Bill Haas, who have each played seven holes on opposite nines, are on the move. Both have joined the group at 10 under after Snedeker opened with three birdies and Haas with four.
As far as the cut is concerned, there are currently 79 players at 3 under or better. But there is a lot of golf remaining to be played on Friday.
