Ricky Barnes took advantage

U.S. golfer Ricky Barnes took advantage of the rain to impose a new record of eight under par and 132 holes in 36 strokes, which left him as leader of the United States Open yesterday after completing a delayed second round.

Barnes, a rookie on the Tour, had five under par with 65 strokes in the second round, beating her compatriot Lucas Glover, who joined the 64 who made 133.

Canadian Mike Weir won the U.S. Masters in 2003, made 70 and added 134.

Argentine Angel Cabrera, winner Augusta, scored 143 hits for the first 36 holes with 69 in the second round.

Tiger Woods, defending champion of the tournament, also finished with three on par with 143 strokes to deliver a card of 69.

"No doubt I'll have to do a couple of better rounds," Woods admitted.

"But if you have the ball in play here, you have a chance (...). I really need to give the ball better, "added the star.

Tied for fourth place at three under par 137 strokes are the Swedish Peter Hanson (71), the Japanese Azuma Yano (65) and American David Duval (70), one of the world exnúmero and who seeks to win his first tournament Tour in eight years.

American Phil Mickelson, world number two, scored 70 and was beaten in the group of 139 that included his compatriot Steve Stricker (66). Colombian Camilo Villegas, the better placed to date in Latin America, is in the seat 34 along with six other golfers, while the Spanish Sergio García is 16, to be the best among the Iberians.
