PHOENIX – Moses Lake native Kirk Triplett shot a bogey-free, 7-under 64 on Friday to take a two-stroke lead over last week’s winner Steven Alker. Jim Furyk and Phil Mickelson sit at T-3 (-10) and are paired together for Saturday’s third round. Schwab Cup points leader Bernhard Langer courageously gutted through another painful day suffering from a back injury, and shot a 1-over 72. He currently sits in 31st place and it now appears that Furyk has the best shot at the Schwab Cup. Miguel Angel Jimenez and Ernie Els, contenders coming into the tournament, had less-than-stellar days, with Jimenez now T14, and Els in 32nd place.
Post-round video of Triplett, Furyk and Langer follows.
