Rose ties Carnoustie lowest score in The Open

But not necessarily at the British Open.

Russell Knox, born in Inverness, Scotland, to a Scottish mother and American father, had reached age 33 with the hard feat of two PGA Tour wins and one European PGA Tour win (two weeks ago in Ireland) and a fine world ranking of No. 49 without ever playing in a group with Woods.

In 2014 McIlroy was the victor of the Claret Jug at a sun-soaked Hoylake, but he refused to let the conditions get to him on Friday in his chase for a fifth major title and first for four years. With 28 players under par after two rounds, and 39 within six shots of the lead shared by Americans Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner at six under, it feels like multitudes contend.

Hot weather has left the fairways baked hard, effectively shortening numerous holes and allowing players to favour accuracy off the tee. Spieth hit 8-iron through a gap in the trees for a birdie-birdie start to the back nine, and he dropped only one shot - not four like he did on Thursday - over the four closing holes at Carnoustie for a 67.

Former world number one Tiger Woods made an indifferent start with bogeys at the second and third but he bounced back in style with birdies at the fourth and fifth to return to level-par, eventually going out in 37, one over par.

Hang on tight for a wild weekend at Carnoustie.

What about that guy who shot 63 on the Sunday of the US Open at Shinnecock Hills for a second straight top-five US Open finish?

Zach Johnson, Kisner, Spieth and Fowler are sharing a house down the street from the course with a private chef cooking them meals and massage therapists on duty.

Jordan Spieth is back in the hunt, too, in his bid to take the claret jug back home to Texas.

So suffice it to say there's a lot on the line for everybody.

"I'm not enjoying my golf at the minute, and my golf is not really enjoying me". "[I'm] very happy to be back in the tournament", Spieth said.

"Hopefully I've got my best stuff on the weekend", the 2012 Open runner-up and 2013 Masters champion said.

"I've been called Dustin many times", Zach Johnson said.

'There are many contenders to win, ' Guardiola said. "It's a pretty safe assumption". I was nice to him, I think.

The only time he was under par for his round was after a five-iron easily cleared the Spectacle bunkers on the par-5 14th and rolled onto the green to a front pin, leaving him an 18-foot eagle putt.

That meant Fleetwood was just a shot off the lead after earlier defying miserable conditions to card the only bogey-free round of the day, his flawless 65 just two shots outside the course record he set in last year's Dunhill Links Championship.

"He's good", said Kisner.

It was a spirited effort in some less-than-spirited weather, with an annoying steady rain falling throughout the morning session.

It started in late June when Jovan Rebula, the nephew of South African golfing great Ernie Els, won the British Amateur Championship at Royal Aberdeen.

Johnson holed a 30-foot birdie putt on the 18th and had a one-shot lead over Tommy Fleetwood at the midway point of the second round. But it was significant to KT Tape in Utah, whose executives were pleasantly surprised on Thursday morning when the buzz made it to their offices before most had even come in for the day. "You're on the toughest test in golf".

The 147th British Open leader board reflected precisely this.
