His putter finally cooperating, Adam Scott has surged into contention for a 15th US PGA Tour victory with a scintillating second round at the CJ Cup in Las Vegas.

With two back-nine eagles and seven birdies, Scott carded a nine-under-par 63 to soar to 13 under for the championship to be in a four-way tie for second.  Read more

From Yahoo!Sports, by Max Schreiber:

On Day 2 of the CJ Cup, Adam Scott shot his best round since the same tournament three years ago, only then it was played in South Korea. 

Scott capped his 9-under 63, which included a career-high 14 one-putts, with seven straight 3's on his scorecard, the only par coming on No. 16. The exclamation point came at the final hole.

After making eagle at the par-5 14th, where he put a 228-yard shot from the rough to 3 feet from the hole, Scott found himself in a bunker after his tee shot on the par-5 18th. This time, he was 229 yards from the hole. And, once again, he stuffed his approach shot inside 5 feet and made eagle.  Read more
