Fehr Shoots Record 62 In Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS -- For a guy planning on giving up the life of a tour pro, Rick Fehr can still play a little golf.


He showed that Thursday, flirting with a magical second round of 59 before settling for a 10-under 62 to tie the PGA Tour's 36-hole record, and take a three-shot lead in the Las Vegas Invitational.


"Your expectations get pretty high when you birdie every hole and make an eagle," Fehr said. "The thought (59) crossed my mind but I don't think it slowed me down."


Fehr's 62, which tied the course record, followed an opening 64 to make him 17-under overall.


Fehr's round was the lowest of the day on the TPC at Summerlin, left defenseless by a lack of wind. But the rest of the field was lurking not far behind on a course that yields birdies by the bunches.


That included Tiger Woods, who shot a 9-under 63, his best score in his brief pro career to get to 10-under. Woods narrowly missed a putt for eagle on the last hole that would have matched Fehr's 62.
