Australian Scott grabs one-shot lead after second round

1:32 pm on 24 September 2011

Australian Adam Scott birdied the last two holes for a second consecutive day to break one stroke clear of a tightly bunched leaderboard at the season-ending Tour Championship at Atlanta.

The 31-year-old calmly rolled in putts from seven and 10 feet respectively at the 17th and the last to cap a sparkling five-under-par 65 in the second round at East Lake Golf Club.

Champion there in 2006, Scott recorded eight birdies and three bogeys to post an eight-under total of 132 and stay on track for his ninth PGA Tour victory and FedExCup honours.
