There's something about the West Coast Swing that seems to bring out the best in Spencer Levin. After posting three top-20 finishes last year, Levin went low at the Farmers Insurance Open, blistering the course with a 62 on Thursday before stumbling over the final three days. And just like clockwork, he's back in contention a week later at the Waste Management Open.
Only this time around he's hoping for a better ending. Levin fired a 8-under 63 on Friday to grab a five-shot lead over Harrison Frazar at the midway point in Scottsdale. Other notables within shouting distance are Webb Simpson (8-under) and Kyle Stanley (7-under). Play was once again delayed due to frost, forcing tournament officials to, once again, call play on Friday due to darkness. 34 players will have to come out on Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. ET to finish their rounds.
