Phil Mickelson, the No. 2 player in the world golf rankings, shares the lead after completing his second round today at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.
Mickelson shot a second-round 68, moving to 7-under for the tournament and into a tie for the lead with Johnson Wagner, who stands at 7-under through five holes in today's round. Mickelson was 6-of-6 on sand saves and needed only 25 putts to complete his round.
He called it "probably the best putting round I've had all year."
Mickelson and Wagner are one stroke ahead of Matt Kuchar (6-under), who fired a second-round 64.
