Americans out in front but Rory McIlroy is on a mission
It was damp but definitely not a squib. After a low-key start, the 147th Open Championship came to life on day two. Tommy Fleetwood, the Carnoustie course record holder, and Rory McIlroy, who gave the world a glimpse of his potential when finishing as top amateur here 11 years ago, both made morning moves in the rain. So, too, did Zach Johnson, the winner at St Andrews in 2015.
