Scottsdale, AZ - Tommy Gainey finished off a six-under 65 on Saturday to take the lead after two rounds of the weather-delayed Phoenix Open.

Gainey, the first-round leader, completed the final nine holes of his round and remained in first at 14-under 128 at TPC Scottsdale. His first nine holes were played on Friday, when the second round began.

"(Playing professional golf is) the best job in the world," said Gainey, who has yet to win on the PGA Tour and holds his first second-round lead. "We get to play for $1 million every week. I'm just happy to be here."

Frosty conditions have postponed play repeatedly, already pushing the conclusion of the tournament into Monday. There were no delays on Saturday, and all players were able to finish the second round after it re-started at 11:30 a.m. (et).

The third round was set to get underway.

Mark Wilson, who was tied with Gainey atop the leaderboard when play was stopped because of darkness Friday night, finished his second round with a seven-under 64 and is in second at minus-13.

Bill Haas (65) moved into third place at 12-under 130, while Chris Couch (65) is fourth at 11-under. Rickie Fowler posted a career-best nine-under 62 to move into a tie with Phil Mickelson (65) for fifth place at 10-under.

The boisterous crowd was treated to plenty of excitement on Saturday, including a pair of aces.

Jarrod Lyle, who is tied for 37th at five-under 137, had a hole-in-one at the 16th, much to the delight of the crowd, who were waving their green rally towels fervently. Lyle played to the fans, raising his arms in celebration and urging them to cheer him on.

The other ace came from Brendan Steele, who recorded the feat on the 12th hole. Steele also finished at five-under.
