2011 British Open Leaderboard: Second Round Starts With Four-Way Tie For First

The 2011 British Open is shaping up to have a rather eventful second round thus far in Sandwich, England, as there is now a four-way tie for first place on the British Open leaderboard.

Early Friday morning Lucas Glover and Darren Clarke finished their second rounds at four-under, but they now have a bit of competition as Day 1 leader Thomas Bjorn and England's Simon Dyson are also four strokes below par as they near completion of the front nine.

One player that won't end up at the top of the leaderboard when Friday's action ends is Phil Mickelson, though "Lefty" is moving up the leaderboard after finishing his second round with a one-under 69 after scoring an even-par 70 on Thursday. Mickelson is tied with Tom Lewis for 15th place.

Lewis had an abysmal second round, finishing four strokes over par on Friday after scoring a five-under 65 on Thursday, dropping him for first place to fifteenth.

Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy have recently began their seconds rounds at Royal St. George's so it'll be worth keeping an eye on them as the day progresses.
