LAS VEGAS -- J.J. Henry shot even-par 71 one day after breaking the course record with an 11-under 60 at TPC Summerlin. Henry is still in contention. He's tied for second at 11-under 131, four shots back of Webb Simpson.

Henry had nine birdies and an eagle Thursday. He made four birdies and four bogeys Friday, including bogeys on his first two holes. "I was 11 shots higher and I honestly don't feel like it," Henry said. "I didn't hit it quite as good as yesterday, but the putts just didn't fall like they did yesterday. All in all, I was a little bit disappointed, ... but still two rounds to go. I'm right in the thick of things."

The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open became a 72-hole event held solely at TPC Summerlin in 2008; the winner since then has never had a round in the 70s.

Henry hit 14 of 18 greens Friday, three fewer than the previous day. He had 32 putts Friday after needing just 24 the previous day.
