Scottish Open: Doak Leads, Mickelson Lurks

Reminder to American readers that the first-ever network coverage of a European Tour event kicks off Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. ET on NBC and based on the weather so far, should be another beautiful day in Inverness.

Martin Dempster talks to Mickelson about a third hole shot that announcers swooned over and sets up the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open heading into third round play:

For the second day running, he started with a three-putt. “It was one of those rounds that could have gotten away from me as I was a little bit off today,” he admitted. “But I fought hard. I feel I’m hitting good shots and if I can get a hot putter then I can hopefully make up ground.”
Mickelson isn’t the only American in the mix. Peter Uihlein, winner of the Madeira Island Open earlier in the season, now has a bigger prize in his sights. Two-over-par after six holes yesterday, the 23-year-old covered the remaining 12 in eight-under. On 11-under at halfway, he’s just one behind leader Chris Doak along with English duo Matt Southgate (64) and Ross Fisher (65) as well as Dane JB Hansen (65).
