Mickelson shot a 2-under 70 after opening with a 77 at TPC San Antonio's AT&T Oaks Course. Lefty was 11 strokes behind leader Steven Bowditch, the Australian who had a 67 to reach 8-under 136.

Mickelson was in the stream that runs in front of the 18th green after attempting to reach the par 5 in two from 288 yards with a 3-wood.

Bowditch holed out from 83 yards for an eagle on the par-4. The 30-year-old topped the leaderboard at the end of a round for the first time in his PGA Tour career.

Chad Collins and rookie Andrew Loupe were a stroke back. Collins shot 66, and Loupe had a 70.

KIA CLASSIC

CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) - Dori Carter might have gotten a bit ahead of herself late in the second round of the Kia Classic. She still left everyone else behind.

After birdieing six of the first seven holes on the back nine, Carter bogeyed the final two holes for an 8-under 64. The round was her lowest in competition and broke the Aviara course record.

Winless on the LPGA Tour, the former University of Mississippi player had 11 birdies and three bogeys. At 10-under 134, she had a two-stroke lead over Stacy Lewis and Cristie Kerr.

Carter tied for 68th in the season-opening event in the Bahamas and tied for 28th in the Women's Australian Open, then played three Symetra Tour events. Last week, she failed to Monday qualify for the Phoenix event, flew to Florida for the Symetra Tour event, then made another cross-country trip to California.

Lewis shot 66, and Kerr had a 68.

EURASIA CUP

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - Thailand's Prayad Marksaeng and South Korea's Kim Hyung-sung helped Asia cut Europe's lead to 7-3 in the EurAsia Cup, beating Danes Thomas Bjorn and Thorjorn Olesen 4 and 3 in foursomes play.

Anirban Lahiri and Siddikur Rahman also earned a full point for Asia, topping Joost Luiten and Victor Dubuisson 1 up. Europe, up 5-0 after the opening fourballs Thursday, got a full point from Graeme McDowell and Jamie Donaldson with a 2-and-1 victory over Gaganjeet Bhullar and Nicholas Fung.

Europe's Miguel Angel Jimenez and Pablo Larrazabal halved with Thongchai Jaidee and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, and Europe's Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and Stephen Gallacher halved with Koumei Oda and Hideto Tanihara.

The competition will end Saturday with 10 singles matches.
