Riley, who has not played at Muirfield since 2002, was able to get into the lead by putting the ball well.

Riley’s 66 equaled his best round of the year. He opened with a 66 in the Byron Nelson Championship last week.

Riley, was a member of the U.S. Ryder Cup team in 2004, but has struggled for the past few years to make cuts in tournaments and dropped out of the top 125-money winners on the PGA Tour. He then had to get his career back on track on the Nationwide Tour and was able to return to the top-125 in 2010.

Tiger Woods was his old self at the Dubai Desert Classic, hitting strong tee shots and using great control on the course.

He turned in the best score of the second round with a bogey-free 6-under-par 66 to get back into contention in the United Arab Emirates in a fifth place tie.

Woods is four shots behind leader Rory McIlroy and he has a chance to win for the first time in more than a year.

He finished with six birdies and is at 7 under entering the final rounds at the Emirates Golf Club.

Woods won the tournament in 2006 and 2008.

McIlroy followed his opening 65 with a 68. The 21-year-old from Northern Ireland always plays well in tournament which he won two years ago.

Early golfers take advantage of breezy conditions on Old Course at St. Andrews

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Old Course at St. Andrews is 137 years old rarely gives up low scores.

But on Thursday, Rory McIlroy delivered an incredible run into the record book with a 9-under-par 63 which gave him a two-shot lead.

John Daly, who can play a great round of golf when he wants to, did so yesterday by blasting long tee shots and making several birdies for a 66, matching his best score in the British Open.

And let’s not forget the world’s number 1 golfer, Tiger Woods, who ran off three straight birdies for a round of 67.

There were 45 rounds in the 60′s, 73 players broke par and the average score was under par at 71.75.

But McIlroy was the best. The 21-year-old Northern Ireland native’s 63 tied the lowest score in any major, and it was only the second such score at St. Andrews in golf’s oldest tournament championship.

Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland, who set the early pace with a 3-under-par 68 to take a two-shot lead, into the weekdend was tough for Phil Mickelson to catch even on a good day for Lefty.

McDowell was at 3-under-par 139 and he had a bogey on the final hole that assured 60-year-old Tom Watson of two more rounds in what probably will be his final U.S. Open.

Mickelson had several birdies to put himself in line for a U.S. Open Championship.

On Thursday, Mickelson could not make any birdies, but on an overcast Friday, Mickelson made six of them.

With five birdies in a seven-hole stretch early in his round, Mickelson shot a tournament-best 66 and joined a shrinking group of five players who have beaten par over two days at Pebble Beach.

Mickelson was joined at 1-under 141 by two former U.S. Open champion Ernie Els (68), 18-year-old Ryo Ishikawa (71) and Dustin Johnson (70), who has won the last two times in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and is right at homer in the tough playing conditions.

Tiger Woods is lurking and believes he is still in the mix. He just needs a few more birdies and to sink more putts to move up to the top five where he is sure to be dangerous.

He had a 1-over-par 72 which left him seven shots back. Woods has never won a major where he was trailing more than six shots going into the weekend.
