This week: Waste Management Phoenix Open, Thursday through Sunday, TPC Scottsdale, Scottsdale, Ariz.
Moore’s second-round score: 5-under-par 66.
Kelly’s second-round score: 3-under 68.
Stanley’s second-round score: Even-par 71.
Position: Moore (10-under 132) is tied for eighth, and Stanley (4-under 138) is tied for 60th – all trailing leader Phil Mickelson (17-under 125). Kelly (2-under 140) missed the cut by two strokes.
Recap: A second consecutive 66 has Moore in contention. His bogey-free round had five birdies as he threatened all morning to take a share of the lead with Mickelson. Yet, on the final stretch, he left two birdie putts at the 15th and 16th holes inches short, and on the tough finishing hole, he missed an 8-footer for birdie. … Stanley returned early Friday to complete his first round, and promptly rolled in a 45-foot eagle putt at No. 17. But he did not build off that in the second round as he was 2-over through 13 holes before recording back-to-back birdies at No. 5 and No. 6. … Kelly had arguably his best round of the season (five birdies, two bogeys), but was just 1-under on the par-5 holes all week.
Tee times Saturday: Stanley at 9 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee, and Moore at 10:30 a.m. PDT off the first tee.
Next for Kelly: AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am starting Thursday at Pebble Beach Golf Links in California.
