Kyle Stanley takes a drop as his caddie watches on the 14th hole of the South Course at Torrey Pines after his tee shot wound up in the hazard during the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open golf tournament, Friday, Jan. 27, 2012 in San Diego.

SAN DIEGO — Kyle Stanley made more than enough birdies Friday to offset one big mistake, giving him a 4-under 68 on the South Course at Torrey Pines and a one-shot lead in the Farmers Insurance Open.

Stanley went over the back of the 14th green and into the hazard for a double bogey, but made five birdies the rest of the way and wound up one shot clear of Brandt Snedeker, who had a 64 on the North Course.

Stanley was at 14-under 130 going into the weekend, with the last two rounds on the South, which is 604 yards longer. That suits Stanley just fine; he's one of the longer hitters on the PGA Tour.

Phil Mickelson could only manage a 68 on the North Course. He missed the cut at his hometown tournament for the first time in 10 years.
