Round 2 in progress at British Open
GULLANE, Scotland - The second round of the British Open is underway at Muirfield, and as was the case yesterday, the world's best golfers are plying their trade in perfect weather. It may not be typical British Open weather, but for the Scots it's a brilliant summer day.
Tiger Woods was among the earlier finishers. After playing the Muirfield course in 2-under on Thursday, the world's top-ranked player shot even par to remain 2-under for the tournament. His round consisted of three birdies and three bogeys. Lee Westwood is also in the clubhouse at minus-2 after a 3-under-68 in the second round. Completing the list of players in the clubhouse at 2-under is Henrik Stenson.
Jordan Spieth, the 19-year old winner of the John Deere Classic last week, has completed his second round and is 1-over after a 3-over-74.
First-round leader Zach Johnson is just starting his round and it began with a bogey. He is now 4-under for the tournament.
Phil Mickelson hasn't had a good start to his day with a pair of bogey's and after two holes he is now at even-par.
By the way, 1998 Open champ 56-year old Mark O'Meara followed up his 3-under-68 from Thursday with a 7-over-78.
