GOLD COAST, Australia (AP) — Adam Scott took advantage of easier morning conditions Friday to shoot a 4-under-par 67 and take a two-stroke lead after two rounds of the Australian PGA championship.
Scott was at 10-under 132, while fellow Australian David McKenzie was in second after a 69 at Royal Pines.
American Rickie Fowler, who began the day with a two-stroke lead, holed out with his approach on the first hole for an eagle, but things got progressively more difficult for him in swirling afternoon winds. He finished with a 72, tied for third, three strokes behind Scott.
Scott was honored Friday with "Green Day" as spectators and many fellow players wore something green to commemorate Scott's playoff victory at the Masters in April; the first Australian to win the green jacket.
