American Thomas reached five under 12 holes after 12 holes, while Australian Scott ended 11 holes.

After starting his first round on Friday, the Masters champions of 2013 also reached five under for his second round, with five birdies spoiled by a bogey on the par-five 17th.

Holmes of America hit a hole-in-one on the par-three sixth for a 63, which was the best score of the opening round.

Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland improved at an opening 72 by four birdies by hitting 12 holes in his second round to go to three under.

Tiger Woods is one underneath after an opening round of 70 and is equal on level by 12 holes for his second round, after he had first sunk a leg of 44 feet to eagle on the par-five
