British Open 2014 Scores: Biggest Surprises from Day 2
Scott Heppell/Associated Press

Calmed by soothing winds and hazy sunshine, the 2014 Open Championship at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake presented no real surprises to its international field of golf’s best.

The wet and wild weather we expect from a British Open was nowhere to be found, leading to a rain of low scores.

Instead, the surprises came in the form of stellar play by a few relative unknowns, wayward play by a two-time majors winner and sheer excellence by a worldwide favorite.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson played as expected. Woods barely made the cut after shooting 77, while Mickelson shot a pleasant two-under 70 and sits at even for the tournament.

Both are well back of the leader Rory McIlroy, who stands at 12 under par.

Check out the big surprises from Day 2 at Hoylake. They foretell a great weekend to come at the 2014 Open Championship.
