McDowell shares lead in Scotland

July 8, 2011

Storms brought an early end to the second round at the Scottish Open on Friday, with former US Open champion Graeme McDowell in a three-way share of the lead.

McDowell shot an 8-under 64 in perfect conditions in the morning. He's tied with Scottish pair Scott Jamieson and Peter Whiteford, who had 66s, at 11-under 133.

Spain's Jose Manuel Lara (66) was a shot behind the leaders, while Argentina's Angel Cabrera, Belgium's Nicolas Colsaerts (66) and Lawrie were two strokes back.

Phil Mickelson shot a 67, seven strokes behind the leaders. He should just make the cut.

Organizers abandoned play shortly after the afternoon starters were forced inside for a second time after an earlier stoppage of more than two hours. The second round will resume Saturday.
