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.

The 23-year-old Reed eagled the par-5 fifth hole, hitting a high 5-iron approach that landed softly on the left side of the green and rolled to 4 feet. He also had eight birdies and his lone bogey in 36 holes.

Todd had a bogey-free 63 on the Palmer course. Ryan Palmer was third, three strokes back at 15-under, after a 65 at La Quinta.
