Orlando, FL ( - Adam Scott continued his hot play on Friday as he carded a 4-under 68 and pushed his lead to seven strokes after two rounds of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Scott, who tied the course record of 62 on Thursday, matched the tournament's 36-hole scoring mark on Friday as he finished 36 holes at 14-under-par 130. His total of 130 matched the mark that Andy Bean and Tom Watson set in 1981.

The Australian could have broken that record, but he ended his round with a 3- putt bogey on the 18th at Bay Hill.

J.B. Holmes (69), Francesco Molinari (70) and Puerto Rico Open winner Chesson Hadley (68) share second place at minus-7.

Keegan Bradley, who shared third here last year, posted a 5-under 67. He moved into a share of fifth at 6-under 138. He was joined there by Brandt Snedeker (71), Jamie Donaldson (71), Jason Kokrak (71) and Morgan Hoffmann (71).
