Bradley still clear in Texas

Keegan Bradley remains three shots clear at the halfway mark of the HP Byron Nelson Championship. The American followed up his course-record 10-under 60 with a one-under 69, moving into 11 under at the TPC Four Seasons Resort in Texas on Friday. Bradley, winner of the PGA Tour event in 2011, mixed four birdies with three bogeys during his second round. American Tom Gillis and South Korean Sang-Moon Bae moved into a share of second at eight under. Gillis carded the equal best round of the day with a seven-under 63, holing eight birdies to go with a bogey at the par-four ninth. Bae&aposs second straight four-under 66 saw him move into contention, while a trio of players are a further shot back. South African Charl Schwartzel (70) and American duo John Huh (64) and Ryan Palmer (68) are at seven under. Argentine Angel Cabrera (69) is joined at six under by five others, including Canada&aposs Graham DeLaet (67) and Americans Ted Potter Jr (70), Scott Piercy (68), Gary Woodland (65) and Harris English (70). Erik Compton of the United States shares 13th place with seven others after his 63, which like Gillis&apos round, included eight birdies and a bogey. Defending champion Jason Dufner just made the cut after a second consecutive even-par 70. Sweden&aposs Robert Karlsson, who shared third overnight, missed the cut after a dreadful eight-over 78, which included a triple bogey on the par-four 11th. Nathan Green (68) is the best-placed Australian at five under in a tie for 13th, while Marc Leishman and Cameron Percy (both four under) are close behind. Stuart Appleby (one under) and 2010 champion Jason Day (even par) were the other Australians to make the cut. Steven Bowditch, Alistair Presnell, Greg Chalmers, Nick O&aposHern, Rod Pampling, John Senden and Scott Gardiner will play no part this weekend.
