Spencer Levin leads the Phoenix Open after the second round suspended on Friday – Golf News
Spencer Levin took a three-stroke lead over Harrison Frazar after he shot a spectacular eagle on par-four 17th in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, at the Tournament Players Club (TPC) Scottsdale, Arizona.
The 27-year-old American carded a total of six birdies and an eagle in a bogey-free round to finish eight-under par.
“Hopefully, I can just keep trying to believe in myself and just keep trying to make my swing, and we'll see what happens,” Levin said.
He went on, “I am going to give it my best shot. It should be fun. I'm looking forward to it”.
Levin started his second round with a stroke behind overnight leaders, Ryan Palmer and Jason Dufner, as he scored six-under par 65 in the opening round.
Palmer and Dufner failed to hold on to their lead and Levin surged past them in style, leaving both of them behind by eight strokes, at the mid of the tournament.
His final score at the end of two rounds was 14-under par 128 against Jonathan Frazar’s 11-under par on the 15 holes he played prior to bad light suspended the play on Friday evening.
“There toward the end it was getting kind of tough to control the ball and to see it,” said Frazar, the St. Jude Classic winner last year. “The temperature dropped, so the ball flies a little differently”.
The play will resume on Saturday morning at 9:30 am local time, with 36 players completing their rounds.
Webb Simpson, the top-ranked player in the field, finished two-under par 69 to share third position with tour rookie, John Huh, who finished five-under par 66.
“That was probably the darkest I have ever played,” said Simpson, who was among the last group to successfully complete the second round. “I could not really see anything”.
Kyle Stanley, who faced a devastating defeat in the last week’s Farmers Insurance Open when he failed on the final hole on Sunday to make a triple bogey, finished at seven-under par 135 overall score.
Stanley, trying to make a strong comeback, succeeded in carding four birdies and a superb eagle against a single bogey in the round to finish five-under par 66.
