Defending champion Adam Scott took a share of the second-round lead at the Australian Masters, with birdies on his first three holes Friday and two of his final four giving him a round of 5-under-par 66 at Royal Melbourne.


These golfers weren't smoking anything when they picked out their outfits. But you might think otherwise when you see what they wore.

Scott, winner of this year's Masters at Augusta National and last week's Australian PGA, had a two-round total of 9-under 133, level with fellow Australian Nathan Holman, who shot 65 on Friday.

They had a one-stroke lead over Australians Matthew Griffin (65) and first-round leader Nick Cullen (69). American Matt Kuchar (66) was four strokes behind the leading pair and in fifth place while Vijay Singh was seven strokes behind after a 68.

''It was a great start, but unfortunately I couldn't keep it going,'' Scott said. ''I'm in good shape for the weekend, but this course can jump up and get you.''

Leukemia survivor Jarrod Lyle shot an even-par round of 71 to make the 36-hole cut in his first tournament in 20 months. He's at 1-over par, 10 strokes behind Scott and Holman.
