D.A Points carded an 8-under-par 64 at the TPC Summerlin course in the second round of the Frys.com Open on Friday to move to 14-under 129.

Points, who shot a 6-under 65 at TPC Canyons on Thursday, had three birdies and an eagle en route to a 31 on the front nine Friday before recording four more birdies with a bogey on the back nine.

Todd Fischer, Tom Pernice Jr. and Aaron Baddeley all are two shots off the pace after each carded a 65 at TPC Summerlin.

Troy Matteson and Brent Geiberger are another stroke back after posting a 65 and 64, respectively, at TPC Canyons.

Shigeki Maruyama and Charley Hoffman also are three shots off the pace. Starting on the 10th hole, Maruyama recorded three birdies on the back nine and holed an eagle on No. 4 en route to an 8-under 64. Hoffman recorded six birdies for a six-under 66.
