GULLANE, Scotland — A day after snapping his 8-iron in disgust, Charl Schwartzel has gone on the offensive again at the British Open.

The South African described conditions at Muirfield on Friday as unfair and "a lottery," despite shooting the lowest second-round score so far.

The 2011 Masters champion compared the fairways to a "runway" after hitting his drive at No. 15 380 yards into a bunker at speed and another at the second hole more than 400 yards.

Schwartzel, who shot a 3-under 68 to move to 1 over par, says "it becomes a bit of a lottery. You don't know what's going to happen ... you can hit good shots and get all sorts of results. And it's not that exactly fair, in my eyes."

However, Schwartzel says if he wins the claret jug on Sunday, "I'll be kissing this golf course."
