LAS VEGAS (AP) - Jonas Blixt shot his second straight 7-under 64 on Friday for a share of the second-round lead with Brendon de Jonge in the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

De Jonge followed his opening 62 with a 66 to match Blixt at 14-under 128 after two rounds in perfect conditions in the Fall Series opener.

Blixt, from Sweden, and de Jonge, from Zimbabwe, are winless on the PGA Tour.

Ryan Moore, the former UNLV player who matched the TPC Summerlin record Thursday with a 61, was a stroke back after a 68. Daniel Summerhays and Tim Herron were 11 under. Summerhays had a 63, and Herron shot 68.

John Daly was 10 under after a 63, matching his lowest score of the year. At 132nd on the money list, the two-time major champion is trying to move into the top 125 to secure full playing privileges for next season.

Vijay Singh, Nick Watney, Chris Kirk and John Huh also were 10 under. Singh and Watney shot 66, Kirk had a 68, and Huh a 69.
