Can’t Keep Up With Jones

By Compiled From Wire Services

Steve Jones turned up the heat in the Phoenix Open with a 7-under-par 64 that helped him match a PGA Tour record and open a five-stroke lead with two rounds to go. Jones’ 64 followed an opening 62 as he led Nick Price by two shots.

The 1996 U.S. Open champion’s total of 16-under 126 tied the PGA Tour record for the first 36 holes, first done by Tommy Bolt in 1954.

Former Pullman resident Kirk Triplett missed the cut by one stroke.
