Furyk leads at Akron

3:46 pm on 4 August 2012

The American golfer Jim Furyk has a 2 shot lead after the second round of the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

Furyk backed up his opening round heroics with a four under par 66 to move to 11-under par, two clear of Spain's Rafael Cabrera Bello and three ahead of former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa.

Defending champion Adam Scott of Australia is one over par.

Seven-time champion Tiger Woods has seemingly given up any chance of an eighth win and a return to the world number one ranking after shooting 72 to be two-over and 13 strokes adrift of Furyk.
