LAS VEGAS (AP) - Chad Campbell closed with an eagle on the par-5

Campbell, a former UNLV player, also had seven birdies in his
bogey-free round in warm conditions at TPC Summerlin. Matteson
followed his career-best 62 with a 67 to match Campbell at 13-under

Matt Kuchar, coming off a victory two weeks at Turning Stone in
the Falls Series opener, shot a 64 to join former UNLV player Ryan
Moore (63), Bob Heintz (67) and Martin Laird (67) at 12 under.
Moore eagled the par-5 16th.

Rickie Fowler (64), the 2008 college player of the year as a
freshman at Oklahoma State, was 11 under in his first PGA Tour
start as a professional.

Three-time Las Vegas winner Jim Furyk (67) also was 11 under
along with Las Vegas native Scott Piercy (67) and Tom Pernice Jr.
