As The Associated Press’ John Reger mentioned, the leaderboard at the AT&T Classic is more clogged than a Los Angeles freeway.
There currently is an eight-way tie for the lead at 5 under among Tom Purtzer, Jay Haas, Bernhard Langer, R.W. Eaks, Tom Jenkins, Brad Bryant, Loren Roberts and Graham Marsh.
Tom Kite opened the second round with an eagle on the par-5 first hole and followed with a birdie on the second.
Kite, the 2006 AT&T Classic champion, dropped a shot at the fourth hole but made a birdie at No. 9 to shoot a 3-under 33 on the front and move into a tie for 13th at 2 under.
