SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- J.B. Holmes, who won this tournament
two years ago, shot a 6-under 65 to share the lead with Doug
LaBelle II at 9-under 133 among players who finished the second
round at the FBR Open. LaBelle shot a 64.
A 90-minute frost delay to start the day left 45 golfers on the
course when play was halted because of darkness.
Camilo Villegas (vih-JAY'-guhs) was tied for the lead at 9 under
through 12 holes. Two are at 8 under -- Bill Haas through 13 holes
and Ben Crane through 14.
They will complete the round Saturday before the cut is made,
then the third round will begin.
Pat Perez and Nick O'Hern shot 65s and are one behind the
leaders at 8 under. Charles Howell III, Stuart Appleby, Briny Baird
and Robert Allenby are 7 under.
