JOHN DEER CLASSIC

SILVIS, Ill.

Zach Johnson and William McGirt were at 12-under-par 130 and tied for the lead at the halfway point of the John Deere Classic. They were a stroke ahead of Steven Bowditch, Johnson Wagner and Brian Harman. Three-time Deere winner Steve Stricker shot a 65 Friday for a 133 total to vault into contention at the par-71 TPC Deere Run, and was tied for sixth with Rory Sabbatini, Ryan Moore and Todd Hamilton. Johnson, the Deere winner in 2012, shot a 4-under 67 in the afternoon despite two bogeys in his last four holes. That dropped him into a tie with McGirt. McGirt, 35, is looking for his first PGA Tour victory. He added a 66 to his opening 64, but like Johnson, he finished with a bogey.

SCOTTISH OPEN

ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND

Rory McIlroy surrendered the lead at the Scottish Open with his latest second-round meltdown on Friday, leaving three players tied for first place on a day when brutal winds played havoc with the field. Kristoffer Broberg of Sweden, Argentina’s Ricardo Gonzalez and Marc Warren of Scotland were atop the leaderboard on 6 under, with just 17 of 150 players shooting below 70 on the par-71 Royal Aberdeen links course. McIlroy shot a course-record 64 in the first round but followed it up with a 78, continuing a worrying trend this season that’s seen the former world No. 1 fail to build on strong starts.

U.S. SENIOR OPEN

EDMOND, OKLA.

Colin Montgomerie shot an even-par 71 on Friday on the second day of the U.S. Senior Open and leads Scott Dunlap by one stroke. Montgomerie opened with a 65 on Thursday. Dunlap had a 69 in the first round and a 68 in the second to get to 5 under for the tournament. Dunlap was at 2 under after starting on the back nine, and then went back to the front nine and birdied Nos. 2, 5 and 7 on his way to a 32. “I have been particularly good with the putter this week,” he said.

WOMEN’S BRITISH OPEN

SOUTHPORT, ENGLAND

American Mo Martin had a plan to play Royal Birkdale. It has worked better than she imagined at the Ricoh Women’s British Open. Martin took two putts from short of the green on the par-5 18th for her 10th birdie in two days. It gave her another 3-under 69 and a three-shot lead over Beatriz Recari of Spain and former U.S. Women’s Open champion So Yeon Ryu going into the weekend. The weekend will not include Michelle Wie.
