Montgomerie opened with a 65 on Thursday, and then held off the field in mid-90s heat and high humidity. He is at 6 under after two rounds.

"It’s not easy to repeat a good round as yesterday’s was, but this was as good, to be honest," he said. "Seventy-one out there was a good effort. Breezy conditions, windier than it was yesterday, warmer and with the pack coming at you — it’s never easy."

Dunlap had a 69 in the first round and a 68 in the second to get to 5 under. He was at 2 under after starting on the back nine, and then went back to the front nine and birdied Nos. 2, 5 and 7 on his way to a 32.

"I have been particularly good with the putter this week," Dunlap said. "Been tidy. I have made a couple, made all my short ones. You know, those will be big in any tournament, for sure, but especially a major."

Dunlap has one bogey in 36 holes on a course regarded as one of the most difficult in the United States.

"Take my hat off to that," said Bernhard Langer, who is tied for third. "That’s good playing. It’s all I can say. It’s very difficult not to make bogies here. You can bogey every single hole. There’s no easy hole out here, and that’s very good ball striking or incredible scrambling, whatever he does."

In Silvis, Ill., Zach Johnson and William McGirt were at 12-under-par 130 and tied for the lead at the halfway point of the John Deere Classic. They were a stroke ahead of Steven Bowditch, Johnson Wagner and Brian Harman.

Three-time Deere winner Steve Stricker shot a 65 Friday for a 133 total to vault into contention at the par-71 TPC Deere Run, and was tied for sixth with Rory Sabbatini, Ryan Moore and Todd Hamilton.

Johnson, the Deere winner in 2012, shot a 4-under 67 in the afternoon despite two bogeys in his last four holes. That dropped him into a tie with McGirt.

McGirt, 35, is looking for his first PGA Tour victory.

Women’s British Open

In Southport, England, American Mo Martin carded her second straight 3-under 69 in the Women’s British Open, taking a three-shot lead over Beatriz Recari of Spain and former U.S. Women’s Open champion So Yeon Ryu going into the weekend. Michelle Wie, coming off her first major in the U.S. Women’s Open at Pinehurst No. 2, followed her highest score of the year (75) with one that was even worse, a 78, to miss the cut by three shots.
