Phil Mickelson missed a chance to break the PGA Tour's 36-hole scoring record when he finished with a double bogey after driving into the water at the Phoenix Open on Friday.
Mickelson followed his opening 60 with a 65 to reach 17-under 125, one stroke off the tour record for the first two rounds of a tournament shared by Pat Perez and David Toms.
Mickelson did tie the Phoenix Open record set by Mark Calcavecchia in 2001.
Bill Haas was second, four strokes back.
A day after missing a chance for a 59 when his 25-foot putt on the ninth lipped out, Mickelson managed to birdie that hole on Friday, one day too late.
