Tom Kite continues to own sole possession of the lead at the 2012 U.S. Senior Open from Indianwood Golf and Country Club, as the 62-year-old short-game master is 2-under par through 13 holes with a one-stroke advantage.
After blowing everyone away on Thursday with a record-setting 28 on the front nine, Kite opened his second round on the back nine in much the same fashion, reeling off four birdies to card a 4-under 31. A pair of bogeys at No. 1 and No. 4 dropped Kite back to 7-under for the championship, but he remains in a prime position for the weekend if he can remain composed through his final holes.
Lurking right behind Kite throughout the entire major championship thus far has been Lance Ten Broeck, who currently sits at 6-under. Ten Broeck is also 2-under during his Friday round, but has a number of dangerous threats sitting behind him at 4-under. Arguably the most intriguing of those names happens to be Tom Lehman, who bounced back from his 70 on Thursday with an impressive 66 on Friday morning to enter the mix. Lehman's 66 is the second-lowest score to hit the clubhouse so far on Friday, as Jay Don Blake's sparkling round of 65 has not been touched.
