trees on his closing holes and shot a 4-under 66 at the halfway
point of the Bridgestone Invitational to put his name atop the
leaderboard for the first time in more than four months.
He was one shot ahead of Phil Mickelson, who holed a 20-foot par
putt to finish off a 66 that put him in the final group with Singh.
Sean O'Hair had a 67 and joined the group at 5-under 135 that
included Lee Westwood, former Masters champion Zach Johnson and
Sixteen players were within four shots of the lead.
