LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) -- Scott Stallings opened a five-stroke lead in the Humana Challenge on Saturday, holing a 20-foot downhill putt on the par-5 eighth hole for his second eagle of the round.

Stallings shot a 9-under 63 to reach 22-under 194 after three days in perfect conditions in the Coachella Valley. The two-time PGA Tour winner played PGA West's Jack Nicklaus Private Course after opening with a 66 on the Arnold Palmer Private Course -- the site of the final round Sunday -- and shooting a 65 on Saturday at La Quinta Country Club.

John Rollins, Stallings' playing partner, was tied for second with Stewart Cink, Roberto Castro, Charles Howell III and Charley Hoffman.

Phil Mickelson scrambled to make the cut by two strokes in his season debut.
