Adam Scott leads at Byron Nelson

IRVING, Texas, April 25 (UPI) -- Adam Scott, the only player in the world top 10 playing in the event, took the lead Friday after two rounds of the Byron Nelson Championship in Irving, Texas.

The 10th-ranked Scott fired a 3-under 69 and his 5-under 135 total put him one shot in front of Scott McCarron, Mark Hensby and first-round co-leader Matthew Goggin.

Scott birdied his first four holes and then battled the revamped TPC-Four Seasons golf course and the blustery winds for the rest of the day.

"It was a fast start, which was very handy this morning," Scott said. "But after that it was a bit of a battle, a fair bit of scrambling going on. The conditions were tricky. It was hard to hit fairways and hard to hit greens, hard to hit it close."

Justin Leonard, Parker McLachlin, Charley Hoffman, Roland Thatcher and Ryan Moore were tied for fifth at 137.

Trevor Immelman, playing for the first time since winning the Masters this month, shot a 75 and missed the cut by 10 strokes.
