Scottish Open golf: Goosen on the charge

Filed under: by: golf clubs showcase

Course record holder Retief Goosen was at it again at Loch Lomond today, charging into the Barclays Scottish Open lead with a second-round 63.

The 2001 champion, whose record 62 actually came four years earlier than that, had an eagle and seven birdies to move from joint 17th overnight into a two-stroke lunchtime advantage over Australian Adam Scott.

But while Goosen moved impressively on to the 11-under-par mark of 131, Colin Montgomerie was assuming he had missed the halfway cut in his national championship for the third time in a row – despite closing with four successive birdies.
