IRVING, TEXAS (AP) - Keegan Bradley again bogeyed Nos. 1 and 18 in the Byron Nelson Championship.
Unlike the first round, Bradley didn’t set a course record. But he still finished with a three-stroke lead.
Bradley started and ended his round Friday with those bogeys, part of a 1-under 69 that got him to 11-under 129, the lowest 36-hole total at the Nelson since 2001.
“I’m almost more proud of this round than yesterday because I didn’t feel comfortable all day,” said Bradley, whose opening 60 included his only bogeys at those same holes in the middle of that round. “I don’t know what it was, I can’t put my finger on it but, you know, I bogeyed the first hole. I was a little uncomfortable and then I settled in and hit some really good shots.”
Bradley won the event in 2011 for his first PGA Tour title.
Tom Gillis, who shot 63 in the first group of the day off the No. 10 tee, and Sang-Moon Bae (66) were tied for second. A stroke further back were 2012 PGA Tour rookie of the year John Huh (64), Ryan Palmer (68) and 2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel (70).
Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old amateur from China, missed the cut with rounds of 70 and 77.
MOBILE BAY LPGA CLASSIC
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) _ Jessica Korda shot a 7-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead over Hall of Famer Karrie Webb after the second round of the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic.
Korda had seven birdies in her second straight bogey-free round to reach 13 under on The Crossings course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Magnolia Grove complex.
The daughter of former tennis players Petr Korda and Regina Raichrtova, the 20-year-old Korda won the 2012 Women’s Australian Open for her lone LPGA Tour title.
Webb also had a bogey-free round, birdieing the last three holes for a 63. The 38-year-old Webb won the last of her 38 LPGA Tour titles in 2011. The Australian played alongside Korda and Brittany Lincicome.
Chella Choi was two strokes back at 11 under after a 66.
Sydnee Michaels had a course-record 62 to join Pornanong Phatlum and Thidapa Suwannapura at 10 under. Phatlum shot a 65, and Suwannapura had a 67.
Defending champion Stacy Lewis was 4 under after her second straight 70.
