Waste Management Phoenix Open R2 - JB Holmes shot a six-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead
(Richard Sellers/PA Wire)

JB Holmes shot a six-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead into the third day of the Wasmte Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

The 37-year-old American fed off the energy from the crowd on the back nine as he opened with birdies on the 13th, 15th and 16th and an eagle on the 17th.

Despite closing out his opening nine with a bogey on the 18th, Holmes kept his composure to pick up three shots after the turn..


Sitting at 13-under, Holmes heads into Saturday one shot in front of fellow American Wyndham Clark.

After taking the lead with a career-best 61 on Thursday, Clark struggled to maintain that form through day two as he fell to second with a two-under 69.

Scotsman Russell Knox was the best of the British contingent, finishing the day tied for 33rd on 4-under.
