Brad Faxon shot a 64 and took a one-stroke lead over Guy Boros, Fuzzy Zoeller and Tom Watson after Friday’s second round of the $1.4 million AT&T; National Pro-Am golf tournament.
Faxon completed two rounds at 10-under-par 134 in holding off Boros, who shot 66, Zoeller (67) and Watson (65).
Faxon, who had only six top-10 finishes last year, gained momentum with three straight birdies on the front side of the Poppy Hills course, one of three being used in this tournament. He bogeyed Nos. 15 and 16. Boros, son of the late two-time U.S. Open champion Julius Boros, and Watson played Spyglass Hill, and Zoeller played Pebble Beach.
The courses were still damp from 26 straight days of rain in the area.
