Fort Worth, Texas • PGA Tour rookie Brice Garnett grew up in a small Missouri town where his home course is a nine-hole layout.

Garnett has gone from Daviess County Country Club and then Missouri Western State to leading at Hogan's Alley after two rounds at Colonial.

After starting with an eagle, Garnett shot a 4-under 66 on Friday and moved to 7-under 133. He had a one-stroke lead over long-putting Chris Stroud (64) and Robert Streb (68).



"I'm just keeping my head down and trying to make as many birdies as possible," Garnett said. "I'm going to try to embrace it this weekend and have fun, and we'll see where we stand come Sunday."

Adam Scott, playing as No. 1 in the world for the first time, had birdies on three of his last seven holes for a 68 to get to 1 under. He has made the cut in his last 34 PGA Tour events, the longest active streak.

LPGA Tour

Mobile, Ala. • Catriona Matthew remained atop the Airbus LPGA Classic leaderboard, birdieing four of the last seven holes to take a one-stroke advantage over Charley Hull into the weekend.

Benton Harbor, Mich. • Tom Watson shot a 3-under 68 for a share of the lead in the Senior PGA Championship.
