Blixt and de Jonge finished 36 holes over the TPC-Summerlin course in 14-under 128 -- Blixt firing a 64 and de Jonge a 66.
Daly began the tournament having won $479,595 this year, the most he has earned on the tour since 2005, which put him in 132nd place on the money list. He must finish among the top 125 on that list to regain an exempt position on the tour, something he has not had in five years.
The two-time major championship winner, beset by personal problems throughout his career, would jump to 120th place if he could maintain his current position in this tournament.
He also has three more events in which to make enough money to earn his exemption.
