STATELINE, Nevada (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee matched the event record with 33 points Saturday to take a one-point lead in the American Century Championship.

Scobee eagled the par-5 16th and had six birdies and two bogeys for a 6-under 66 at Edgewood Tahoe. He had 57 points after two rounds at Edgewood Tahoe in the modified Stableford event where players receive six points for eagle, three for birdie, one for par, none for bogey and minus-2 for double bogey or worse.

Former pitcher Mark Mulder was second. He eagled the par-5 18th — hitting his approach to 6 inches — in a round of 70 for his second straight 26-point day.

Former pitcher Eric Gagne was third after a 29-point round. He had six birdies and one bogey in a 67. Recently retired tennis player Mardy Fish was fourth at 49 after a 27-point round.

The winner Sunday will receive $125,000.
