The only man to ever post a 10-under score after two days at the British Open Championship, 31-year-old Nashville native Brandt Snedeker took full command of the 2012 event with a tournament-low round of 64 on Friday morning.
Despite never making a cut at a British Open in his career, Snedeker holds a one-stroke lead on round one leader Adam Scott, who posted a 3-under 33 on his back nine to card a 67 on Friday. The two talented players will pair together for Saturday's round, which is shaping up to feature plenty of intrigue as former No. 1 Tiger Woods breathes hot on their heels in the second-to-last group.
Woods used a miraculous birdie chip-in from the bunker on the 18th hole to move to 6-under for the tournament in his second round, as he will have 36 holes to make up the four-stroke difference. Woods will be paired with Danish challenger Thorbjorn Olesen on Saturday, after the 22-year-old youngster birdied six of his final 10 holes on Friday to reach 5-under for the championship.
