CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- As Phil Mickelson's round imploded with a
series of wayward shots, the Wachovia Championship in Charlotte
flew in a different direction.
Jason Bohn fired a 5-under 67 on Friday to take a two-shot lead
at 9 under after the second round, while Mickelson's double bogey
on Quail Hollow Club's easiest hole began a horrible closing
stretch that left him seven shots back.
Anthony Kim's 67 put him at 7 under and alone in second place,
while 2006 champion Jim Furyk, Dudley Hart and George McNeill were
three strokes back after 67s.
Mickelson, the biggest draw in this event with defending
champion Tiger Woods home nursing his surgically repaired left
knee, finished with two double bogeys in his final four holes on
the way to a 74.
