SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Eric Axley and D.A. Points are co-leaders at the halfway point of the PGA's Texas Open Golf Tournament in San Antonio.

Through 36 holes, they are at 9-under 131.

In Friday's second round, Axley shot 7-under 63, his lowest single-round score as a professional. He turned pro in 1997, and has made 10 cuts this season.

"Today was a pretty stress-free day," said Axley. "It seemed like all my birdie putts I did make were between eight and 12 feet without much break."

Paul Goydos, who also shot 63 Friday, is third at 8-under 132.

Bernhard Langer (65), Charley Hoffman (67), Dean Wilson (67), Frank Lickliter II (66) and David McKenzie (68) are tied for fourth at 7-under 133.

Among those missing the 2-over 142 cut were Paul Azinger, Charles Howell III and John Cook.
