Spieth leads Open by two as Birkdale bares teeth

Spieth leads Open by two as Birkdale bares teeth

After missing his par, Casey went on to drop another shot at the next hole when he skirted a short putt past the hole. When play restarted 25 minutes later, Spieth quickly added two birdies to get back to six under.

The best second round score came from American Zach Johnson, the 2015 victor, who shot 66.

"But somehow I was able to find it halfway through the round and, again, that's what I'm going to concentrate on going into tomorrow". You can't even get on to watch the Open anymore.

And Koepka had been inactive for a week longer since claiming his first major title in the US Open at Erin Hills, where his 16-under-par total equalled the tournament record set by Rory McIlroy in 2011. I was lucky enough to get off to that great start but conditions got a little worse on the back nine. Koepka was at 3 under with two holes to play.

Casey shot a 66 along with Schwartzel, while Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello, victor at the Scottish Open last weekend, is three-under.

Spieth had spoken of the importance of being on the right side of the draw, but his resilience was underlined by a fantastic chip-in par-saver at the 10th, followed by two birdies immediately after the brief weather delay.

"When I won those three tournaments in '14 and I was where I was in the game, yeah, of course, I thought, okay, I really can keep this going", he said.

But his best shot was with his feet in the sand.

Rickie Fowler, picked by many to win the claret jug, made four birdies and five bogeys.

"Henrik Stenson, the man whose inspired ball-striking beat Mickelson a year ago at Troon, also endured a trying day on the links â€" but that had just as much to do with a burglary of his rented home while he played his first round.

OMearas first shot was lost in the gorse, he made a quadruple-bogey 8 and was on his way to an 81.

And then he hit another one.

It called to mind a statistic that seems peculiar in totality: No Englishman has won the Open Championship since Nick Faldo in 1992, and no Englishman has won any of the nine Opens contended at Royal Birkdale. It was here in 1998 that he materialized as a 17-year-old and struck a still-famous pitch shot on the 72nd hole to loose a mighty roar and finish fourth as an amateur.

"I was going into the Masters the next year thinking I can win the Grand Slam, I can do this, I can do that, and some things just come along that you don't expect, well, that's really been a couple of injuries the last couple of years, and that sort of stops me in my tracks". “If I can go out and play a good, quality round of golf in the morning and try to get in the clubhouse somewhere around even par, under par, Ill still be around for the weekend.”.
