2012 British Open, Leaderboard Update: Brandt Snedeker, Adam Scott Pull Away, Tiger Woods Holding Strong

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.
