GLENEAGLES, Scotland (AP) -- Ignacio Garrido shot a 3-under 69 Friday to take the lead after the second round of the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles.
The 39-year-old Spaniard rolled in his fifth birdie of the day at the par-3 No. 17. The 8-under total left him a shot clear of five players that included Thomas Bjorn (69).
Overnight leader Mark Foster (71) was among the players tied with Bjorn.
Garrido won the 2003 PGA Championship at Wentworth for his second tour title. He has had modest success this season, his best finish fifth at the Irish Open.
Foggy conditions on Thursday caused many players to finish their first round early Friday.
