British Open Round 2 Results: News, updates, tee times, TV/streaming info

By

By the time many Americans wake up and check their smartphones Friday, Tiger Woods may be out of the British Open and Rory McIlroy could be close behind out the door after 36 holes.

Both golfers – among the betting and/or emotional favorites to win at the Royal Portrush Golf Club’s Dunluce links course this week – faltered terribly in Round 1 Thursday. Their future in the 148th Open Championship remains perilous after McIlroy and Woods shot 79 and 78 respectively.

Woods goes out at 5:09 a.m. ET with Matt Wallace and Patrick Reed. McIlroy begins his second round at 10:10 a.m. ET with Gary Woodland and Paul Casey.

For McIlory, the tournament may have ended on the first hole, when he fired two shots out of bounds en route to a quadruple-bogey eight. McIlroy, a fan favorite among his fellow Northern Ireland countrymen, bookended his round with a triple-bogey 7 on the par-4, 18th hole.

Other than a botched gimme on 16, he was just fine.

McIlroy is 8-under overall and 13 shots behind leader J.B. Holmes

For Woods, the day was even more painful, in a literal sense. On his tee shot at No. 1, Woods appeared to tweak his back. The raw golf-cold of Portrush took its toll from there and Woods was never close to establishing anything close to major-championship momentum. Woods had only played 10 competitive rounds since his Masters victory in April, which seems 95 years rather than 95 days ago.

The cutline is likely to be in the area of 2-over.

Just 2 shots off the lead lurks World No. 1 Brooks Koepka.

Nearly invisible for the first 10 holes of his round on NBC’s telecast, Koepka was simply Koepka and churning away at the best Royal Portrush and the ever-changing conditions put in his way. Koepka is taking aim at his fifth overall major title, his fourth in the past 14 months and his second of 2019.

Koepka, Louis Oosthuizen and Shubhankar Sharma begin their second round at 3:30 a.m. ET.

For reference, Northern Ireland is five hours ahead of Eastern Time in the United States. So a 1 p.m. tee time at Royal Portrush means play begins at 8 a.m. on the East Coast.

British Open Updates

11:30 a.m.: Now that Tiger Woods is gone, all eyes have shifted to Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy, as each desperately tries to make the weekend cut.

9:20 a.m.: J.B. Holmes – who lettered on his high school golf team for 10 years after starting as a third grader – is the clubhouse leader at 8-under after 66-68 in Rounds 1 & 2. And he did it Friday in under five hours!

8:40 a.m.: Shane Lowry has moved up into a tie for second.

7:55 a.m.: J.B. Holmes is feelin’ it – back-to-back birdies have him alone in the lead by 2 at 9-under.

7:50 a.m.: Phil Mickelson begins his day in the near rough. He’s 5-over and has a gambler’s chance to make the cut – which is projected at 1-over. That’s means a 67 if Lefty wants to stick around for the weekend.

7:48 a.m.: J.B. Holmes reclaims the lead at 8-under.

7:30 a.m.: Good morning, North America. Tommy Fleetwood – that shirt ?!?!? – and J.B. Holmes share the lead at 7-under. Tiger is still kicking. Jordan Spieth has maneuvered himself into a tie for third with Brooks Koepka and Justin Harding at 5-under.
