Scott provides ball-striking masterclass in Memphis

Australian ace lurking menacingly

Adam Scott fired 64 despite missing lots of putts
1 of 1

Three players are tied atop the leaderboard at the St Jude Classic in Memphis, with former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel the stand-out name of the trio.

Schwartzel, a 33-1 chance at the outset, fired an opening round of 65 and followed up with a 66 to set a nine-under-par halfway total. The South African is 14-5 favourite with 36 holes to play.

Chez Reavie and Sebastian Munoz are alongside Schwartzel at the head of affairs, with 2009 Open victor Stewart Cink alone in the fourth place.

Ante-post 8-1 favourite Rickie Fowler missed the cut, rounds of 74 and 70 leaving him three shots outside of the qualifying mark, but all the other big names are safely through to the weekend.

Adam Scott will be particularly looking forward to the next two rounds, having carded the best round of Friday, a 64 which included an eagle at the 16th hole. Scott has had his ball on the proverbial string for two days, but endured putting frustration in round one. The Australian is tied for 11th place, four shots behind.

Given how strongly Scott closed round two, he should be considered for his round-three threeball. The former world number one had a birdie chance from 13 feet or shorter from the 13th hole onwards on Friday, three of which he missed. He almost made an ace at the 14th hole and was four under par for his final five holes.

A measure of Scott's tee-to-green brilliance is the fact that he missed eight putts of 15 feet or shorter in his second round. A ridiculously low score could have been posted on a difficult TPC Southwind course with a fully functioning putter in hand.

Scott is a more than fair price in the outright betting at 10-1, and worth backing at 13-10 for his third-round threeball against Kevin Chappell and Scott Brown (4.55pm UK and Ireland time). Chappell is a solid opponent, but the quality of Scott's ball-striking over the last two days makes him a strong favourite against anyone.

Proven TPC Southwind performer, Billy Horschel, also played some excellent golf in round two and can be fancied to account for JB Holmes and Xander Schauffele today (3.45pm).
