British Open 2012 Leaderboard Day 2: Scores, Results and Analysis
The first day of the 141st Open Championship saw more scoring than expected. Star players like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy were nipping at Adam Scott's heels. Brandt Snedeker overtook Scott who had a great day of his own.
McIlroy has since dropped back but Tiger staged a late run to stay in contenion.
The last 15 major championships have been won by 15 different champions. Who will be next?
Here is the current leaderboard:
Awesome day of golf, especially the way it closed. I just want to thank everyone who read and followed today. I'll be back tomorrow at 6:00 am ET to cover all the action. Have a great night!
Aiken drains a birdie putt as well to get back to -4! Two surprises on the leaderboard.
Olesen nails the birdie putt! He gets to -5 and will be paired with Tiger tomorrow!
Olesen's second barely sneaks on the left front of the green. Aiken hits his stiff on the front of the green. Aiken has a birdie chance here.
And now instead of showing the golfers actually, you know, golfing, they have to force feed us another annoying Rick Reilly segment.
Olesen teeing off at No. 18, he snaps it down the middle of the fairway. Aiken follows with a fairway drive of his own.
Olesen hits a great approach on No. 17 and makes a birdie. Aiken and Olesen have now flip-flopped.
Aiken's bunker shot went awry. He'll have a tough par putt.
His putt rolls just wide and he'll drop to -3.
Aiken misses the green with is second into the bunker. Tiger is still putting in work.
With Dufner in only Thomas Aiken and Thorbjorn Olesen are significant and still on the course. I'll keep this going until they are in the clubhouse. They are both on No. 17.
Aiken is -4 and Olesen is -3.
Jason Dufner closes out his round with a 66 and he is -4 overall. The way he played today he is a definite contender.
Dufner's second shot on No. 18 gets to the green a little closer than Watson's was. Tiger is out on the practice range getting in some work.
When Tiger is Tiger everyone is on board.
Heartbreaking that the cut line moved up to +2 right after Watson made that putt. I'm sorry Aaron Baddeley, but I have to root against you the rest of the day.
What a huge, clutch putt by Tom Watson! He gets back to the cut line! This has been a great 15 minutes at the Open Championship.
Dufner with a great drive right down the middle. He's definitely in striking distance.
That was awesome. The vintage Tiger fist pump, the crowd went absolutely crazy. That was great.
Tiger's bunker shot get in the hole! Woods for birdie! He finishes the second round at -6 overall!
Sergio's second is perfect, about five or six feet for birdie! The cut line is at +3 right now and he's at +4.
The second from Tiger goes right and into the bunker. No birdie for Woods on No. 18.
Tom Watson's birdie try goes just left. It's a shame he couldn't get that one. He then missed the par putt as well.
Tiger's final tee shot of the day is right down the middle again. He has only lost strokes on the two holes where he missed the fairway.
Sergio blasts his down the left side of the fairway. Tom Watson was submerged under water in a bunker. He was given relief and hit an amazing fairway bunker shot onto the green. That was an incredible shot and a great moment from a great player.
McDowell makes another par to finish at -4 overall. He is in good shape for the weekend.
Tiger's birdie putt is hit a little too soft and Tiger will settle for par. Aiken birdies to equal Tiger at -5.
McDowell's second on No. 18 spins back to the hole and stops about three feet away.
I'd like to see someone (Tiger) make a run here at the end.
Tiger's second is on the green but just inside the front edge. Aiken's second is amazing as he hit it above the hole and spun it back inside five feet.
Sergio's second is chunked and it ends up off the green.
