Friday's action at the 2012 British Open was once again rather timid in regards to the weather, leading the field to another day of low scores around Royal Lytham & St. Annes. Adam Scott put on a clinic on Thursday and backed it up with another terrific round on Friday, but it was Brandt Snedeker who stole the show in the second round, firing a 6-under 64 to vault atop the leaderboard at 10-under for the week.
With his incredible start to the Open Championship, Snedeker has tied Nick Faldo for the lowest 36-hole score ever at the tournament. As for Scott, he used a second round 67 to leave him just one shot off the pace at 9-under in solo second.
Tiger Woods was solid once again, finding himself in solo third at 6-under heading into the weekend after a second straight round of 3-under 67. Tiger would birdie three of his last four holes included a chip in from a greenside bunker on the 18th.
Paul Lawrie and Graeme McDowell headline a large group at 4-under for the week, while former champion Ernie Els is 3-under for the week. Phil Mickelson never got anything going, missing the cut at 10-over par.
