La Quinta, Calif. • Patrick Reed found La Quinta Country Club to his liking, too, leaving everyone else behind again in the Humana Challenge.

A day after shooting a 9-under 63 at PGA West’s Arnold Palmer Private Course to take the lead, Reed had another 9-under 63 down the road Friday at tree-lined La Quinta to stretch his advantage to two strokes over Brendon Todd.

"It’s great to have that feeling that you can go out and shoot 63," said Reed, the Wyndham Championship winner in August. "And to actually do it two times in a row shows that what we have done during the offseason and what we’re doing now is working."

Champions Tour

Rocco Mediate took the first-round lead in the Champions Tour’s season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship in Kaupulehu-Kona, Hawaii. Mediate shot a 9-under 63 at Hualalai Golf Course, playing the first seven holes in 6-under with four birdies and an eagle on the par-5 seventh. He added birdies on Nos. 10, 14 and 18 to finish a stroke ahead of 2012 winner Dan Forsman.

St. George’s Jay Don Blake was in a tie for seventh place at 6 under.

Abu Dhabi Championship

Rory McIlroy birdied his last two holes to post a 5-under 67 and lie two shots off the lead two rounds into the Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) Championship.

In a two-way tie for the lead were Scotland’s Craig Lee (67) and Spain’s Rafa Cabrera-Bello (68) at 9 under.
