LA QUINTA, Calif., Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Phil Mickelson, coming off the worst season of his career, fired an 8-under 64 Friday to take a two-shot lead at the Bob Hope Classic.

Mickelson failed to win a tournament in 2003 and stepped away from the PGA Tour while his wife endured a difficult pregnancy.

In his first 2004 appearance, however, Mickelson has demonstrated he is back on his game. He had a 54-hole total of 21-under 195 in the five-round tournament.

Ben Crane and 50-year-old Jay Haas were at 197 while Paul Azinger and Todd Fischer were at 198.

Second-round leader Kenny Perry had to settle for a 3-under 69 Friday and shared sixth place at 199 with Sikp Kendall, Kirk Triplett and Geoff Ogilvy.
