U.S. Open Champion Jones Grabs 2-Shot Lead In Phoenix

By Compiled From Wire Services

Steve Jones, whose triumph in last year’s U.S. Open capped his comeback from a 1991 dirt-bike accident, shot Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, Ariz. David Duval, Tommy Tolles, Joe Ozaki, Rick Fehr, Chip Beck, Jesper Parnevik, Rocco Mediate and Phil Blackmar had 5-under 66s.

Pre-tournament attention focused on defending champion Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods, who is off to the fastest start to a career in PGA history.

Woods, playing for the first time since he won the Mercedes Championships - his third title in nine tour events - on Jan. 12, needed a birdie on the last hole to finish at 68. Mickelson finished with a 70. Former Pullman resident Kirk Triplett shot a 69.
