Glance at the British Open

BY foxsports • July 17, 2015

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) A glance at the completed second round Saturday of the British Open on the Old Course at St. Andrews:

Leading: Dustin Johnson, who shot a 69 to get to 10 under midway through the tournament.

Just behind: England's Danny Willett, who finished his round Friday, was a stroke back. Former champion Paul Lawrie was at 8 under.

Where's Tiger? Tiger Woods shot 76-75 to miss the cut by nine shots.

And Jordan? Jordan Spieth, aiming for the third leg of the Grand Slam after winning the Masters and U.S. Open, was 5 under, five shots off the lead.

Noteworthy: Play resumed in the rain-delayed round at 7 a.m., only to be stopped 32 minutes later when balls were moving on the greens because of high wind. It was more than 10 hours later before it resumed, with Johnson among those finishing.

Also of note: The tournament will now end on Monday for the first time since 1988.

Weather Watch: Forecasters are calling for lighter wind though some possible rain for Sunday's third round.

Key Pairings: Jordan Spieth, Sergio Garcia, 8:30 a.m.; Dustin Johnson, Danny Willett, 10 a.m.

Quoteworthy: ''It's for the Open. I'll stay until it's done.'' - Louis Oosthuizen on the Monday finish.
