Two share lead at Europe's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Jimmy Mullen and Anthony Wall shared a one-stroke lead after the second round of the European Tour's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on Friday.

Mullen, a first-round co-leader making his pro debut, shot 3-under 69 at St. Andrews to sit at 11-under 133 with fellow Englishman Wall (68), who also played St. Andrews. Said Mullen, 21, "To be top of the leaderboard, I can't really explain it."

The tournament is split among three courses: St. Andrews, Kingsbarns and Carnoustie. First-round co-leader Paul Dunn of Ireland shot 70 at St. Andrews and was in a group of four at 10 under. Argentina's Emiliano Grillo holed out from the fairway for eagle on the par-4 18th to take a one-shot lead in the Tour Championship at Ponte Vedra Beach. Grillo, 23, shot 6-under 64 to reach 10-under 130 after two rounds. Lucas Glover, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, was second after 67. First-round leader Rhein Gibson of Australia shot 76 and was 1 under. The tournament is the fourth and final event in the series for the top 75 players from the money list, Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings and nonmembers such as Grillo who earned enough money to have placed in the top 200 had they been eligible to receive points. Twenty-five PGA Tour cards are at stake.

Presidents Cup: Jim Furyk removed himself from the U.S. team for next week's event because of a wrist injury. He was replaced by J.B. Holmes.
