Bright sunshine and gentle breezes made the design of the actual demand of St. George the link a much more attractive on Friday, a day after powerful blasts off-shore had beaten the course.
Round Clarke was a rollercoaster with an eagle and five birdies against a double bogey and three bogeys, but Northern Ireland’s 42 years old, was optimistic about its prospects for the weekend.
“It would mean a lot, but obviously this is only after two rounds,” he replied when asked what a win at the Open in his 20th attempt would mean to him at this late stage of his career.
“There’s an awful lot to be done so yet, and I think the forecast for the weekend is very, very poor, well ahead.
“But the course is playing very, very difficult. If that’s the case, then the tournament is open to a lot of players, and will be.”

“I” cannot string together four rounds with the minutes, and this week could not even string two together, “said a dejected McDowell.
