Faxon, seeking his initial victory in only his sixth start on the senior circuit, finished 36 holes at 10-under 134, posting a one-stroke lead over Tommy Armour III (67).
Eduardo Romero registered a 4-under 68 for the second straight round to grab sole possession of third place at 8-under 136, while Jay Haas (67), Olin Browne (68) and Tom Lehman (70) shared fourth at minus-seven.
