LAS VEGAS — Russell Henley left everyone in his wake with three straight birdies to start the back nine, pivotal in turning a four-shot deficit into a three-shot lead by the end of the day in the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek.

He is going for his fourth PGA Tour victory.

He has never had a lead this large with 18 holes to play.

And what Saturday made him realize was how quickly it can turn around at Shadow Creek — for him and the four players immediately behind him.

“I’ve got to just keep my head down and play a good round for me,” Henley said after a 5-under 67. “There's so much golf to be played. This is just a break we're taking, and I'm just going to try to keep doing it.”

Russell Henley (68) was another shot back at 10-under 134. Defending champion Justin Thomas found some momentum with six birdies, despite missing Schauffele was doing most of the damage. After his tee shot to 3 feet on the 211-yard 13th hole, he rolled in a 25-foot putt on the next hole, a

He did enough on another still, quiet, warm day. And he had plenty of help from the other two players in his group.

Xander Schauffele, who had a three-shot lead going into the weekend, had a pair of late bogeys and failed to capitalize on the par 5s in his round of 74. Tyrrell Hatton didn't make a birdie until the final hole in a 73. Of the top 25 players, they were the only two who shot over par.

Henley's putting has been a great fit for the firm, glass-like greens of Shadow Creek. He leads the field in the most important putting category, and it has carried him to only the second 54-hole lead of his PGA Tour career.

He was at 15-under 201.

Lanto Griffin, who won his first PGA Tour event a year ago at the Houston Open, found the water off the tee on the par-5 18th and made bogey and still managed a 66. He was at 12-under 204 along with Talor Gooch (69), Jason Kokrak (68) and Schauffele, still in the mix despite a sloppy Saturday.

Jason Kokrak wins CJ Cup to get PGA Tour title in 233rd try

  Jason Kokrak wins CJ Cup to get PGA Tour title in 233rd try LAS VEGAS — In his 10th season, in his 233rd tournament, Jason Kokrak can finally call himself a PGA Tour winner. Kokrak earned every bit of it Sunday in the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek. He matched the best round of the tournament with an 8-under 64 to overcome a three-shot deficit at the start and win a duel on the back nine with Xander Schauffele. “Couldn't be happier," said Kokrak. The timing couldn't be better. The CJ Cup moved from South Korea this year to Shadow Creek because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Kokrak is an ambassador for MGM Resorts, which owns the prestigious Tom Fazio design. “It feels like home,” Kokrak said.

Tommy Fleetwood and Keegan Bradley shot a pair of 7-under 65s on Thursday and share the lead at THE PLAYERS Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Here's everything you need to follow Round 2 from TPC Sawgrass. Round 2 tee times.

Hatton was in the group five shots behind with Justin Thomas (68) and Jason Day, who had a 66 as the former world No. 1 tries to end more than two years without a victory.

Henley started to close the gap when he got up-and-down from a bunker in front of the green on the par-5 seventh, and Schauffele missed the green on the par-3 eighth and took bogey.

And when they made the turn, Henley took off.

He holed a 25-foot birdie putt on No. 10, hit driver just through the green on the reachable par-4 11th hole to set up a simple up-and-down for another birdie, and then hit his approach to just inside 5 feet on No. 12 for a third straight birdie.

Henley closed with six straight pars, missing chances on the two par 5s, but no one could catch him.

But he knows what can happen, having flipped his fortunes on Saturday.

“Anybody can come at me,” Henley said. “You can go low out here. The greens are great and it's gettable, but you've got to play well to do that. You've got to do everything well."

CJ Cup: What you need to know for Shadow Creek's PGA Tour debut

  CJ Cup: What you need to know for Shadow Creek's PGA Tour debut The PGA Tour remains in Las Vegas for another week, but it transitions to one of the most exclusive clubs in the United States for the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek Golf Course. The tournament was supposed to be played in South Korea, but it was relocated to the desert due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Schauffele was hopeful of at least finishing his round at par, and that didn't go his way, either. He went long on the par-3 17th into rough so deep he could barely keep it on the green, leading to his fourth bogey. And he went just over the back of the 18th green in two, again in rough facing a downhill chip that he rolled all the way to the fringe.

Schauffele likes to talk about “strokes gained attitude,” and it was a struggle for him with rounds that stretching close to six hours at Shadow Creek because of deep rough, limited marshals and plenty of searching.

Sung Kang knows the feeling. He took an 11 on the par-4 second hole, which included two lost balls when he spent more than three minutes looking and came up empty. He also hit a few backward trying to escape trouble. Nothing worked.

Schauffele wasn't that bad. It just felt like it.

“I was trying to figure out what was worse, the pace of play or my quality of golf,” he said. “It was kind of a tie today. Not to be a sour person, but just one of those days. Today was my bad day for the week. Got it out of the way before Sunday. I guess I'm in a familiar place being three back now."

The road to the Masters is a long way from Augusta National

  The road to the Masters is a long way from Augusta National LAS VEGAS — This is no ordinary road to the Masters. Instead of the tropical warmth of Florida in the spring, it starts in the hot desert air of Nevada in October. Instead of a series of PGA Tour events some 500 miles south of Augusta National with an occasional detour into Texas, this road starts 2,000 to the west, heads out to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and then back over to Houston. What hasn't changed is the top players are back in action with Georgia on their minds. It starts Thursday with the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek, typically held in South Korea and now part of an Asia swing that moved this year to the western U.S. because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
