Sergio halfway Open leader

Sergio Garcia is in the all too familiar position of leading a major golf championship. Garcia has led major championships before, just never when it has counted. After opening with a blistering 6-under-par 65 on Thursday, Garcia shot an even par 71 to take a two stroke lead over K.J. Choi. Choi has already won twice on the PGA Tour this year, so he's definitely someone to keep an eye on. Tiger Woods struggled to a three-over-par 74 to finish the day seven strokes behind Garcia at one over. Phil Mickelson wasn't that lucky, double bogeying the 18th hole to finish at six over par, missing the cut by two strokes.

*** Update - Sergio increased his lead to three strokes, shooting a three-under-par 68 to finish the day at 9-under-par. Steve Stricker shot a 65 to get to 6 under par and have sole possession of second place, while Tiger Woods shot a two-under-par 69 to lurk seven strokes back at 2 under par for the tournament.
