INVERNESS, Scotland (AP) — Storms brought an early end to the second round at the Scottish Open on Friday, with former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell in a three-way share of the lead.

McDowell shot an 8-under 64 in perfect conditions in the morning. He’s tied with Scottish pair Scott Jamieson and Peter Whiteford, who had 66s, at 11-under 133.

Spain’s Jose Manuel Lara (66) was a shot behind the leaders, while Argentina’s Angel Cabrera, Belgium’s Nicolas Colsaerts (66) and Lawrie were two strokes back.

Phil Mickelson shot a 67, seven strokes behind the leaders. He should just make the cut.

Organizers abandoned play shortly after the afternoon starters were forced inside for a second time after an earlier stoppage of more than two hours. The second round will resume Saturday.
