The Open Day 2: No Surprises

Day 2 at The Open Championship went pretty much according to most pundits expectations. The weather and wind were big factors for the lower scores and except for a couple of players -3 was a great score. The number of players under par dropped to 27 and the lead by Phil Mickelson narrowed.

The Big 3 all made the cut, but will have to play well on moving day to be in contention on Sunday. If the scores of the Big 3 continue the current 2 day trend, then Pete Robbins, from White Dragon Golf, prediction at none of the Big 3 will win a Major this year still holds true.

After looking at the scores, I will give Day 2 to Royal Troon; most of the field was trooned, but tomorrow is another day! The following are some Day 2 highlights from Twitter that I think you might find interesting!

I did not find any real nuggets of wisdom from Day 2 at The Open. Maybe you did an would like to share you thoughts.

To celebrate the worsening conditions at The Open, my nephew and I hit the links this morning in the pouring rain! We made it to the 12th hole and then the course was unplayable.

Tomorrow is Moving Day! It is going to be an exciting time watching the players vie to move up the leaderboard. My pick as winner, Rory McIlroy, started to make a move, but misfortune fell upon him and he did not gain any strokes on Phil Mickelson. We will see how he does tomorrow!

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. Jim,

    I am pumped for Round 3! The late-early draw definitely had a scoring advantage in the first two rounds, but there is so much golf left in difficult conditions that anything can happen. I am rooting for Phil to hang on!
