The 2022 British Open is going on live now

Tiger Woods tries to make cut as Round 2 starts

Open Championship — or British Open as the Americans call it — begins in St. Andrews, the birthplace of golf, for the second round. There’s no doubt that this year’s Open Championship will be a fast-paced, wide open event. While Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele, Jon Rahm, Scotty Scheffler, Jordan Spieth and Collin Morikawa are all in the running for the tournament’s most coveted prize, there is no clear-cut front-runner.

The 150th Open Championship is a momentous occasion, and the return of the tournament to St. Andrews after a seven-year absence is a watershed moment in the history of the game. In what may be the last time Tiger Woods competes at St. Andrews, Rory McIlroy has a chance to win the Open Championship there. For all we know, one of golf’s rising stars could become a legend, or perhaps someone completely unexpected will rise to the occasion and take home the Claret Jug for the first time.

Cameron Young shot an eight-under-par round in the first round to take a two-stroke lead into the second round. In the wake of McIlroy’s impressive performance, the rest of the field did the same. On Thursday, St. Andrews golfers believe that the winner will be within three strokes of the lead. Is the Open already over with just McIlroy, Cameron Smith, and Robert Dinwiddie left in contention? Hopefully not. We still have a long way to go.
