Scottsdale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) -
Jay Haas cruised into the lead after firing a second-round, 8-under 62 on Friday and he heads into the weekend with a 4-shot lead at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship.
Haas, who shot a 60 in 2012 to set the course record on the Conchise Course at the Desert Mountain Club, finished 36 holes at 12-under-par 128 and he is four shots up on first-round leader Tom Pernice, Jr.
"I played extremely well," Haas said. "I missed one green and that was No. 12 and I hit a 7-iron just through the green on the fringe, almost made the putt. It was a pretty error-free round."

It's been several years since Sean O'Hair contended in a PGA Tour event. In fact, O'Hair, the 2005 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year and a four-time winner in 10 seasons, has struggled the past three years on Tour, posting just two top-10 finishes in that span, both in 2012.
After fighting to retain his card for the 2015 campaign, O'Hair has shown encouraging signs in the first three starts of the season. Although he withdrew from the Frys.com Open after making the cut in the first event, O'Hair bounced back with a tie for 63rd in Vegas and a tie for 17th last week in Georgia. In fact, O'Hair's weekend total of 132 was his lowest weekend scoring since the 2008 Arnold Palmer Invitational, where Tiger Woods curled in a lengthy putt on the final hole to clip him at the wire.
