4:25 pm on 7 August 2009

Two New Zealand golfers are well-placed going into the second rounds of their tournaments in United States.

Danny Lee's joined the world number one Tiger Woods in a six way tie for eighth after completing a two under par 67 in the opening round at the latest WGC event, the Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

They're four strokes behind leader Padraig Harrington of Ireland.

And Grant Waite's in a seven way tie for second going at the Reno-Tahoe Open in Nevada after a four under 68 -- the Australian Rod Pampling leads by one.
