Showing grit and a newly found putting ability, Sergio Garcia overcame a rough start
to put together a solid second round of 71 to maintain his lead heading into the
weekend at the 2007 British Open at Carnoustie Golf Club. Garcia hit an errant drive
on his first hole, but using a new belly putter, made the putts he needed to
maintain a two-shot lead over K.J. Choi

Tiger Woods also started poorly, hitting his first shot of the day into the water,
and the two-time defending champion never fully recovered, posting a 74 leaving him
seven shots back of the lead. Here is what Garcia, Woods and Choi had to say

Sergio Garcia
Q: Is that what you were looking for after yesterday?

SERGIO GARCIA: Well, I was hoping for a little bit better than what I did. But that
was not a bad round. Every time you shoot on a difficult course, on an Open
Championship, you shoot an under-par round or an even-par round, you know you\'re not
too far away. I\'m happy with the result overall. It was more of a grinder\'s day
today. But overall still pretty happy about it.

Q. It was a miracle recovery on the first?

SERGIO GARCIA: I hit a really good chip there. I wasn\'t really going to try to go
that much at the pin, because I had quite a bad lie. So I was just thinking try and
hit it 10, 12 feet right of the hole and see if you can start with a good, solid
putt and make a good par. But the club just got tangled a little bit in the high
grass and when I saw the way the ball came out I thought this could be really good.
When I saw how it bounced I knew it was going to be close. It was a great save to
start with.

Q. Obviously there\'s more golf to be played out there today, but if you are on the
halfway lead, how comfortable are you with that and how do you feel you\'re suited to
handle that?

SERGIO GARCIA: Well, we\'ll see. I guess it\'s just a matter of waiting and see what
happens. But I\'d rather be leading than being eight shots back, that\'s for sure,
because you don\'t feel like you have to push your game to the limit all the time. So
I\'m pretty happy the way I\'m standing right now. Today, it was a nice day for me. I
knew that everything -- all the eyes were looking at me. It was good to still post a
good, solid round and keep myself up there.
