Sports Betting - Golf: Montgomerie still in control.

Byline: Paul Kealy

COLIN MONTGOMERIE was fighting off all-comers in the early stages of yesterday's American Express Championship second round, writes Paul Kealy. The big Scot, who has yet to win in America, was one under for his round through nine holes and seven under for the tournament.

He began with a three-shot lead, but that had been narrowed to one by Swindon swinger David Howell and Amnerican veteran Mark Calcavecchia.

The world's top two golfers, Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh, were not making the progress expected of them.

Both were in a large group of players sharing second place on Thursday night, but Tiger traded birdies with bogeys to remain on three under after five holes and had dropped back to a share of ninth.

A bogey at the second dropped Singh back to two under and he had to wait a further five holes to lie alongside his arch rival.

Sergio Garcia was making a move, the Spaniard getting to five under at halfway, while John Daly continued to make mincemeat of some of the shorter holes and stood alongside Garcia at two off the pace after five holes, having shaved the fifth hole with around a ten-foot putt.
