DUBLIN - Adam Scott was frustrated by hitting good shots and signing for mediocre scores. After a spirited chat with his caddie, both were determined to squeeze everything they could out of the second round at the Memorial.
Scott flirted with perfection Friday at Muirfield Village, missing four putts inside 12 feet and still shooting a 10-under 62.
It gave him a one-shot lead over Rod Pampling, and he hopes it will be enough to shake off the golf gremlins that have been holding him back since his victory in Houston two months ago.
“We just told each other what we thought about what's going on out there, a bit of a heart-to-heart, because we knew I was close to playing really well,” Scott said of his talk with Tony Navarro. “Our idea was to come out and be focused, and neither of us make a mistake.”
