Sergio Garcia (68-70—138)
In his 18th Open Championship, Sergio overcame a bogey at the first with an eagle-two from the rough at the second en route to a 2-under 70.
Garcia has now made the cut in 14 of 18 Open Championship starts. He owns seven top-10 finishes, of which three are top fives. In 2007, he lost in a playoff to Padraig Harrington at Carnoustie.
At the 2006 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool, Garcia opened with rounds of 68-71, before finishing T5.
Garcia ranks second in most major starts without a victory entering this week: With 61, he trails Lee Westwood by just two.
Coming into the week, Garcia had collected an impressive six top-10 finishes in just 10 starts on the PGA TOUR. His best among them is a share of second place from the Travelers Championship, his last TOUR start prior to this week. On the European Tour, Garcia has two top-10 finishes in nine starts. One of those was a win at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters in January.
Through 36 holes, Garcia has hit 19/28 fairways in regulation (58.9 percent) and 26/36 greens (58.7 percent).
