LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) -- Pat Perez shot a 5-under 67 to remain two shots in front at the Bob Hope Classic.
After opening with rounds of 61 and 63 to complete the first 36 holes at 20 under, unprecedented in PGA Tour history, Perez was at 25-under 191 in the 90-hole tournament.
Steve Stricker shot an 11-under 61 to move into second at 23 under.
Augusta's Vaughn Taylor fired an eight under 64 and sits four shots in back of Perez. On two different occasions Taylor was tied for the lead as he went out well before Perez did.
The tournament wraps up Sunday.
