Cantlay ran four straight birdies halfway through his round and climbed up and down a bunker on par 5 ninth to top a 6-under 65 and be part of a five-way to lead him weekends in Las Vegas

Martin Laird hit his second shot in 4 feet for the eagle on his last hole in the ninth for a 63 Peter Malnati, finalist last week in Mississippi, made a 15 foot for the fringe eagle on No 9 to close his 62

US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau, who opened with a 62, was one shot behind with a round Cantlay could appreciate. Ground can be quickly replenished at TPC Summerlin

DeChambeau drove the green over the seventh by 380 yards for the second day in a row, and this time he converted the eagle putt Yet he was 1 under for his round and out of the top 10 until he ‘he birdie on the 15th hole, then hit a 367-yard drive on the 16th par-5, setting up a 10-foot wedge for the Eagle Just like that he had a 67 and was right in the mix

“Anytime you’re near the head of a PGA Tour event I’m thrilled There’s no doubt about it,” DeChambeau said “I definitely left a few hits there while i did some good shots so i can’t be too unhappy with that, and i can’t wait to hit a few more shots and make some putts that i need that i don’t middle of the round « 

Cantlay won this tournament for his first PGA Tour title in 2017 He was a DeChambeau finalist the following year and lost in the playoffs to Kevin Na last year He expects to play well, and that has shown at the start of his round when he was even a par six and was losing ground

“You have to do so many birds, and I’m just used to it here,” Cantlay said “I never feel like I’m stressing out because I feel like there are so many holes birds It actually allows me to be patient « 

He entered a back bunker on No 11, his second hole of the round, and missed a 10-foot putt At the 15th hole, a par 4 that played just 284 yards on Friday, he drove into a right bunker and didn’t reach the green, having to fight for par on the second easiest hole at TPC Summerlin

At that point he was even on his turn And then he made two putts for birdie on the 16th and had 10ft corners and 15ft for birdies and hit a 4ft corner flip on No 1 Just like that, he was on his way

Laird paid it late He had 2 cents on the back nine, then played the first nine of 30 with four birdies and his eagle putt runs on his last hole

“I hit the 5 iron and I didn’t think I could make it,” said Laird “But for that pin, if you’re 5 yards from the green it’s a pretty straightforward chip on the green And as soon as I hit him, I was absolutely right and I said to my caddy, ‘It’s as good as I have Let’s see if he gets it’ He landed perfect, has jumped up to about 4 feet It was a nice way to finish « 

Sergio Garcia (64) and reborn Stewart Cink (63), who started the new season by winning the Safeway Open for his first title since winning the British Open at Turnberry in 2009, were among these two shots behind

Garcia just picked up a victory at the Sanderson Farms Championship, his first on the PGA Tour since the Masters 2017

« Earlier in the year I felt like I was playing as well as I had been playing for a week and a half, just things weren’t really going on, » Garcia said. « So obviously that is a combination of playing well, confidence, a few good breaks when you need them at the right time that keeps you going, and that’s what I did »

Rickie Fowler went in the opposite direction, who missed the cup for the fourth time since golfing came back in June Fowler hit two shots in the water at the 16th par 5 and landed a triple bogey 8 On the next hole he hit his tee shot in the water on the par 3 and made a double bogey He shot 74

Francesco Molinari, in his first competition since golf closed in March, returned with rounds of 70-68 In Las Vegas, on this course, that meant missing the cup

The cup was 7 under 135 It was the lowest score to make the cup on the PGA Tour since 1970

Among the casualties was PGA Champion Collin Morikawa, who hasn’t missed a cut in his first 23 PGA Tour events as a pro. He has now missed three in his last nine starts, though this streak includes victory
