 At the Second Round of the 2007 British Open, Sergio Garcia maintained his lead, shooting two birdies and two bogeys.

Sergio Garcia strong at the British Open Day 2 Sergio Garcia continues to stay atop of the British Open leaderboard in Day 2 of the golf Championship. Two bogeys at the 4th and 11th were offset by two birdies at the 6th and 14th, and the Spanish golfer is leading with total six under par after the second round of the British Open. Of course the odds on Garcia were immediately slashed - the Spaniard is snow the favorite to win the 2007 British Open at 5/2, according to the U.K. online bookmaker Bet365 (new window).

Tiger Woods, who entered the Open with odds of 3/1 is now listed second with 6/1. Not a good Day 2 for the U.S. golfer, as he double bogeyed at the very beginning, followed by a birdie at the second and 14th, but two bogeys at the 5th and 8th placed him tied for 24th with one over.

KJ Choi is another golfer making the headlines with his dynamic game, which stretched into the second day, as well. KJ Choi got a total of five birdies ( 1st, 6th, 11th, 14th and 15th holes) and only three bogeys (3rd, 8th and 18th) and maintained his second place with 4-under total, two below the leader Sergio Garcia. The Korean golfer is 8/1 to win the British Open.

After Day 2 of the 2007 British Open, Jim Furyk tied 5th with 2-under, and Angel Cabrera is T8 with one under par. Ernie Els had a bad day all around, finishing tied for 17th with even total, and some of the spectators were able to hear words, for which Els later apologized.
