Invoice Haas grabs two-stroke lead at PGA Phoenix

Daniel Berger can get hot in the desert

Rickie Fowler took a share of the lead into the weekend in the Phoenix Open but he knows from experience the party is just getting started.

"Naw, just the same", Matsuyama said. However, a costly double bogey at the following hole - despite the two subsequent birdies he made at the 15th and 16th - meant he went out in 34 but it could have been so much better. They hold a one shot lead over Chez Reavie and Daniel Berger.

Fowler was red hot early in his round, making four birdies on his first six holes and, while he slowed on the back nine, it was enough to move to the top of the leaderboard.

Joining Fowler in the chasing pack at 5 under are Billy Horschel, Bryson DeChambeau, Chesson Hadley, Gary Woodland and Chris Kirk. "Today played the front nine well".

"I still made some good swings, funky little chip on 17, where we were in a good position to make birdie there after putting myself in a great spot so a little unfortunate to make bogey", Fowler told the Golf Channel. He could care less if I played well or bad, he was always supporting us.

Thomas was also upset by the crowd, particularly a scream from a spectator during Jordan Spieth's tee shot at the last.

He also touched upon the opioid crisis that is crushing southern West Virginia, along with many other regions of the country. Joe Manchin has voted no time and again on the policies West Virginia needs", Pence said.

Haas followed his opening 64 with a 72.

The WD is a bit of a surprise as there hasn't been much chatter about the defending champion dealing with any sort of injury, although Matsuyama's wrist and thumb were taped up during Round 1 when he shot a 69.

Spieth shot 72-70, playing alongside Thomas.

Fowler is coming off a missed cut at Torrey Pines last weekend, but said he thought his game was not far off.

Hideki Matsuyama has been forced to abandon his bid for a hat-trick of titles at the Waste Management Phoenix Open after pulling out with injury.

American Robert Garrigus hit the shot of the day at the driveable par-four 17th, nearly making a rare albatross.
