Two-time CIMB Classic runner-up Gary Woodland has another chance to challenge big for the title at TPC Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia after thrashing a bogey-free 11-under-par 31-30=61 in round two to tie the course record, reach 14-under 130 and move into a share of the halfway lead with Marc Leishman.

It's a shot back to Paul Casey and Shubhankar Sharma. Woodland lost a play-off here to Ryan Moore in 2013 and also finished second to his American compatriot 12 months later. He started with 68 in Thursday's opener but roared 25 spots up the board to joint-top spot with today's lap which matched the 61 shot by Justin Thomas in 2015. Woodland set the tone with an opening birdie at 10 and added four more at 14, 16, 17 and 18. Another gain at 1 made it four on the spin and there was no let-up as he poured in further circles at 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9 to secure a share with Leishman who fired a 62. The World No. 38 put on a stripe show today, splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and hitting 17 greens. The course many have been revamped ahead of this year's edition with the introduction of Bermuda grass but Woodland is carrying on as if nothing has changed. He's 1-for-4 with 36-hole leads on the PGA TOUR. The last time he had one, this summer's PGA Championship, Woodland ended T6.

Making his tournament debut and playing La Quinta CC, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 417 Adam Long fired a career-tying-low, 9-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round of the Desert Classic to post 19-under 197, up eight places to solo 3rd, three adrift of 54-hole leader Phil Mickelson, who he'll be grouped with in the final threesome in R4.

It's a small sample size (15 total rounds), but the Duke alum has posted two 63s this week, bettering a previous-best 66 in R1 at the season-opening Safeway. He's chasing his first TOUR title in his sixth career event, fifth as a member, with his best finish thus far a T63 at the aforementioned Safeway. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, the 31-year-old camouflaged one bogey with six birdies and two eagle-3s, posting a tidy 1.429 putts per GIR and tying the low round of the day. He's also made 113 starts on the Web.com Tour where his best is runner-up two times, including once last season in 27 events.

Playing the Nicklaus Tournament Course, World No. 70 Adam Hadwin fired a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Desert Classic for a 54-hole tally of 20-under 196, up one spot to solo 2nd, two shy of leader Phil Mickelson, who was also the 18- and 36-hole pace-setter.

The Canadian is chasing his second TOUR title in 127 events, joining the 2017 Valspar 49 starts ago, where he was the 54-hole leader, shot even-par 71 and won by one over Patrick Cantlay. After opening with 65-66, he began in a two-way T3, three back. On 12 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, the Louisville alum rang up seven birdies, including birdie-4s at each of the four par 5s, and posted 1.563 putts per GIR. He'll be grouped with Mickelson and PGA TOUR rookie Adam Long in the final 3-ball in R4. The Phoenix resident, who was T68 (last) thru 54 holes at last week's Sony, has posted three consecutive top-6 finishes here, including a solo 2nd in 2017 (as 54-hole leader), highlighted by a tournament-record-tying 59 in R3.

Playing the Stadium Course and with first- and second-round leader Phil Mickelson, World No. 52 Aaron Wise backed up after a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the third round of the Desert Classic, falling 15 places on the day, and at 8-under 68-70-70=208, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 73 pros from a field of 155 pros and 1 amateur made the scheduled 54-hole cut on 9-under 207. Wise, a pre-tourney 25/1 outright, was highest up the bookmaker's food chain to hit the exits and misses his first cut at the Desert Classic in three visits. On just three (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, he lost 0.614 strokes tee-to-green, offsetting three bogeys, including two bogey-6s, with five birdies. For the short week, the 2018 ROY mustered 14 birdies versus four bogeys and one double, and ranked 148th in Driving Accuracy (19/42) and 91st in GIR (37/54). Other notables without a Sunday tee time are: 209- Luke List .. 210- Peter Uihlein; Charley Hoffman .. 211- Beau Hossler .. 212- Joaquin Niemann; Charl Schwartzel; Corey Conners .. 213- Ryan Palmer .. 214- Patton Kizzire .. 216- Brian Harman .. 217- Danny Willett.

Playing the Stadium Course, first- and second-round leader and World No. 34 Phil Mickelson styled a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Desert Classic to reach 22-under 194, good for a two-shot lead over Adam Hadwin and three clear of PGA TOUR rookie Adam Long, who is alone in 3rd place.

The Hall of Famer is chasing his 44th TOUR title in 596 events, first since the 2018 WGC-Mexico 18 starts ago, where he came from two back with 5-under 66 and beat Justin Thomas in extra time. The win ended a 4-year, 7-month drought and was his 16th as a chaser and eighth in sudden-death. Lefty is eyeing his third Desert Classic win in 16 tries, joining titles in 2004 and 2002, both as 90-hole events. On six (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he gained 1.372 strokes off-the-tee and 1.372 around-the-green, penciling six birdies at holes 6-8, 13, 14 and 17, five from between 10 and 37 feet, adding a hole-out 2 at 6 from 35'4" away. The ASU alum posted 1.643 putts per GIR and 1.256 SG: Putting, and is vying for his 14th win in his home state.

Playing the Stadium Course (SC) at PGA WEST, sponsor invite and amateur Charles Reiter painted a 9-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round of the Desert Classic, up 67 places to T73 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with Adam Long (La Quinta CC).

The USC freshman is the third player to shoot a course-record 63 on the Stadium Course, joining Whee Kim at the 2012 PGA TOUR Qualifying Tournament and Jonathan Fricke in 2008. This is his second career TOUR start after a missed cut by seven here last year (68-70-77), also on a sponsor invite. Reiter, who attended Palm Desert High School, hit seven (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.692 strokes off-the-tee, 3.573 approaching and 5.431 tee-to-green. He smothered a lone bogey with eight birdies, all from inside of 13 feet, adding eagle-3 (from 10'5"). The World No. 2006 posted 1.400 putts per GIR and 1.518 SG: Putting, and is currently one outside the projected cut line on 8-under 208 (75-70-63).
Jan 19 - 6:05 PM

Playing La Quinta CC, alternate and World No. 418 Dominic Bozzelli twirled a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the Desert Classic to post 16-under 200, up 22 spots to T6, four back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Adam Hadwin.

The 27-year-old checked in off a T33 at last week's Sony where he was T5 thru 54 holes (71-64-64-73). That was his final start on a Major Medical Extension, coming up 86.155 FedExCup points short of meeting the terms, and is now playing the rest of the season on conditional status. This is the Auburn alum's third Desert Classic after a missed cut last year (72-70-83) and a solo 5th in 2017 as the 18-hole leader (64-67-69-71). On 10 (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation, he rang up eight birdies, including four straight at holes 16 thru 1 (as he made the turn), and three consecutive at 5-7. The New York State native kicked off with 67 (NT) and 69 (SC), and today's 64 matched his career low in 151 rounds (x6).

Shane Lowry not only lost his three shot overnight lead, he then overcame a four shot deficit to claim a first title in two and a half years with a final round 1-under-par 37-34=71 for 18-under 270, good for a one shot win over Richard Sterne in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship at Abu Dhabi GC.

The Irishman was emotional after a last lap of wild swings at the head of the leaderboard. The title was in the hands of the final two-ball all day and what a show they put on. Lowry opened with birdie at 1, added another at 4, but three bogeys up to the tenth, plus Sterne hitting the turn in 5-under, saw a seven shot turnaround from the first tee position. The Irishman’s response was superb. At 12 he ticked his 11th birdie at the par 3s for the week (a Euro Tour record) and added two more red numbers at 13 and 18, a chip from thick rough and 12’0" par save at 17 was just as vital; Sterne in contrast made two late bogeys and the birdies dried up. "I completely thought I was gone," admitted the winner. "I didn’t think I had that in me, how mentally strong I was. I’m so thankful for everyone who’s helped me. It’s been a tough couple of years on the course. Not off it, but definitely on it."

Curtis Luck maintained on a spot on the podium after styling a 6-under-par 34-32=66 during round two of the Desert Classic, placing him at 14-under 130 at the midpoint which is just two off the torrid pace set by Phil Mickelson.

The Aussie piped 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation. In round one he circled eight birdies without a single bogey at La Quinta Country Club. He battled with the Nicklaus Tournament Course today and found eight more birdies, dropping two shots along the way. Through 36 holes he has found just 25 greens (T79) but he ranks 1st in the field in Putts per GIR (1.44). Today, he needed just 23 swipes with the flat stick to make his way around. Luck's previous low through 36 holes is 138 at the 2017 Greenbrier Classic so this easily shatters that. The 22-year-old will now turn his attention toward The Stadium Course at PGA WEST for the final two rounds.
Jan 18 - 7:11 PM

Playing La Quinta Country Club and making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 439 Joey Garber tossed up an 8-under-par 30-34=64 in the second round of the Desert Classic for a 36-hole tally of 12-under 132, up 26 places to T5, four short of leader Phil Mickelson.

This is a career low for the Georgia alum in 23 rounds, previously 67 (x2). It's his fifth start of the season, checking in off an 81/MDF at last week's Sony as an alternate. On eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, the 27-year-old squared a lone bogey-5 at 10, smothered by seven birdies at 1, 3, 4, 7, 11, 13 and 15, adding eagle-3 at 5. After opening with 68 on the Stadium Course (1 eagle-3, 3 birdies, 1 bogey), he'll move over to the Nicklaus Tournament Course for Saturday's Round 3.
Jan 18 - 7:04 PM

Playing La Quinta Country Club, World No. 709 Steve Marino hung up a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in the second round of the Desert Classic to reach 13-under 131, up five spots on the live leaderboard to T3, three shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Phil Mickelson.

The Virginia alum's lap was highlighted by an ace at the 168-yard par-3 seventh (8-iron), his first on TOUR in 707 rounds, which capped a run of birdie-birdie-birdie-ace on holes 4-7. He would add a fifth and sixth birdie at 11 and 16, ending the day 7-for-7 in scrambles, including 5-for-5 in sand saves. The 44-year-old, making his final start on a Major Medical Extension, hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, taking 1.545 putts per GIR with 22 total putts, including just nine putts on his first nine holes. He'll move over to the Nicklaus Tournament Course for R3.
Jan 18 - 6:31 PM

Patrick Cantlay battled with the Stadium Course at PGA WEST and walked away with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 during round two of the Desert Classic, placing him at 11-under 133 with two rounds remaining.

The California native is making his second appearance at this event but first since a missed cut in his 2013 debut. He needed to shake off some rust in round one but is now 11-under over his last 27 holes played. Today he pelted 16 greens in regulation which was good for +3.041 strokes gained approaching-the-green. This round could have gone even lower but his putter didn't cooperate at times. Most noticeable was a three-putt par at the 16th with the final miss coming from inside four feet. Cantlay will now head to the easiest course on the rota with a third-round tee time at La Quinta Country Club. He may be five off the pace of Phil Mickelson but he should be considered one of the favorites heading into the weekend.
