The 58-year-old Haas made a 5-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th after hitting his second shot into a greenside bunker and leaving his eagle blast short. He is 14 under for the tournament. Haas became the eighth player in the history of the 50-and-over tour to shoot 60, and broke the course record on Desert Mountain's Cochise layout. Tom Lehman was second after a 63, moving into position to win the season-long Charles Schwab Cup points race.
