The morning groups are well into their second nine on Friday and as was the case for much of the day on Thursday, Adam Scott is atop the leaderboard. Scott is 2-under through 12 holes and has a two-stroke lead at 7-under.
He got off to another good start with a birdie on his first hole of the day. He followed that up with two more birdies and was 3-under through seven holes. He ran into some trouble with a bogey on No. 17 and another on No. 3 after he made the turn. He'll have a chance to increase his lead with some scoring holes coming up.
Webb Simpson is the story of the day thus far. He made the turn at 32 and has been even better on his final nine. He birdied four of his first six holes on his closing nine and is now 7-under on the round and 5-under overall. Simpson was 5-over at one point in the first round, but has made an impressive turnaround. He has a chance to set both the Oak Hill course record and the record for the lowest score in a major championship.
A few notable names haven't had the same success as Simpson. Phil Mickelson is even on his round and remains 1-over for the tournament. After an opening-round 69, Rory McIlroy is 3-over through 14 holes and at 2-over for the tournament, is now in danger of missing the cut.
