The second round of the 2021 Open Championship – or British Open, as some in America call it – takes place at Royal St. George’s Golf Club in Sandwich, Kent, England. This is the last major of the season, the seventh since August, and it is the 149th game of the tournament to be hosted by St Andrews Links next year.
Jon Rahm, who was the favorite to win, seeks to make history by winning the US Open and the Open Championship that same year; Tiger Woods was the last to do this in 2000.
Jordan Spieth, the last American to win the 2017 Open, got off to a brilliant start and shot one shot back to front runner Louis Oosthuizen, US Open runner-up from Rahm a month one in the first round on Thursday 5 under par 65 in front. Lefty Brian Harmon will also be 5 years old on Friday. PGA Championship winner Phil Mickelson scored 80 points in his opening round, tied last in the 156-player field.
