PHIL MICKELSON ROLLED in five birdies on the back nine to lead at the halfway stage of the Travelers Championship.

Mickelson opened with a 64 on Thursday and went one stroke better in his second round, with a dropped shot at the second hole the only blemish en route to a 63.

Less than a fortnight after celebrating his 50th birthday, Mickelson’s 13-under par score puts him firmly in the mix for the 45th PGA Tour win of his career.

Will Gordon sits one shot back in second on 12-under alongside overnight leader Mackenzie Hughes, who followed up Thursday’s 60 with a 68.

World number one Rory McIlroy is among a group of players tied for fourth place on nine-under par.
