CASTLE STUART: Four-time Major winner Phil Mickelson burst free of a recent form slump with a blistering 64 on day two of the Scottish Open yesterday. Mickelson’s eight under par tally in benign conditions in northern Scotland left the visiting American trailing just five strokes behind Sweden’s Alex Noren, who carded a day two 66 to hold the clubhouse lead on 12-under par. Mickelson’s round was his lowest in five months. “I have only played three tournaments the last couple of months so I knew I just needed to play more, and I’m glad I added this tournament,” said Mickelson. “It’s very helpful to see my game progress so quickly and I am very lucky as I have a very supportive family.”
