  • WGT GOLF UPDATE: Phil Mickelson Leads at Northern Trust Open

    17 Feb 2012

    In Round Two of the Northern Trust Open, held at the Riviera Country Club golf course in California, Phil Mickelson held on to his first place lead with a lob wedge from the fairway to eagle the par-four eighth on the way to a six-under total of 136. That carried him to a 1-under 70 and a two-shot lead in the tournament today. 

    Mickelson, who recently won his 40th PGA Tour title at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, currently has a one-shot advantage over Sweden’s Carl Pettersson, who is two-under through 16 holes Friday and five-under for the tournament.

    Jimmy Walker joined Pettersson at four under after a 66, with Matt Kuchar alongside him thanks to a second straight 69. Luke Donald and Justin Rose, one under overnight, were among the later starters, while Pádraig Harrington shot a second round of 70 for a two-over total, with the cut projected to be on that mark. Sergio Garcia was three over in total after six bogeys in a five-over round of 76.
