SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Jon Rahm, a junior from Arizona State, shot a five-under 66 on Saturday at TPC Scottsdale and after making the cut at the PGA TOUR's Waste Management Phoenix Open, Spain's top-ranked amateur has a shot to win.

Rahm is just a stroke out of second place, which is held by Hideki Matsuyama, Brooks Koepka, and Zach Johnson, while Martin Laird holds first place by three shots.

FRIDAY'S RECAP: Jon Rahm makes cut at Phoenix Open

Rahm made seven birdies on moving day, including two in the final four holes to reach the top-five after a bogey on 14 dropped him back outside the top-10.

Rahm will try on Sunday to become the first amateur to win a PGA TOUR event since fellow Sun Devil Phil Mickelson did it way back in 1991 at the Northern Telecom Open, a tournament which eventually became the Chrysler Classic of Tucson, ending in 2006.
