Phil Mickelson shots 65 to lead Phoenix Open

Phil Mickelson birdied the ninth hole a day too late and 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.

Mickelson followed his opening 60 with a 6-under-par 65 Friday in the Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, Ariz., to reach 17-under 125, a stroke off the tour record for the first two rounds of a tournament, set by Pat Perez in the 2009 Bob Hope Classic and matched by David Toms at Colonial in 2011.
