The Open Championship 2013 leaderboard: Angel Cabrera into the lead

Andrew Redington

Halfway through his second round, Angel Cabrera is alone at the top of the leaderboard.

The leaders are beginning to come back toward the field as the second round at the British Open continues. Angel Cabrera is one of the few players under par in the afternoon and he now sits alone at the top of the leaderboard.

Cabrera shot a 2-under 34 on the front side and is now 4-under for the tournament. The only blemish of his front nine was a bogey at No. 6, but he got the stroke back three holes later with a birdie at No. 9. Being in contention at a major is nothing new for Cabrera and depending on how he closes the round, he could be on his way to the 36-hole lead.

Zach Johnson opened the round in the lead, but is now tied for second place, one stroke behind Cabrera. Johnson ran into some trouble on the front nine, making the turn at 38 after bogeying four of his first eight holes. Johnson is tied for second with Miguel Angel Jimenez, who's in the clubhouse at 3-under after shooting a 71.

Phil Mickelson hasn't been as sharp as he was on Thursday, but he continues to battle. He's 1-over on the round, but is coming off a birdie at No. 11. Bubba Watson is also 1-over on the round and is currently four strokes off the lead. Here is a quick snapshot of the leaderboard.
