Steady Snedeker surges to lead at British Open
While others falter, steady Brandt Snedeker surges to Open lead with record-tying 36 holes
By The Associated Press

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England (AP) Brandt Snedeker has surged to a big lead at the British Open with a record-tying performance over the first two days.

The 31-year-old American, who had never even made the cut in golf's oldest major, turned in another bogey-free round with a 6-under 64 Friday that equaled Nick Faldo for the lowest 36-hole score in Open history.

Faldo posted a 130 total at Muirfield in 1992 on the way to the last of his three British titles. Snedeker matched him with a 10-under showing over the first two days, and can only hope that come Sunday he'll be in the same position Faldo was two decades ago holding the claret jug.

When Snedeker walked off the course, he had a four-stroke lead on first-round leader Adam Scott.
