After two rounds of the Open Championship at Royal St. George’s, Louis Ooisthuizen remains in control. That isn’t a huge shock, seeing as how he has been leading after five of the last nine major rounds, but the fact that he set an all-time low score for two rounds at the Open is remarkable. Following up a -6 64 on Thursday, the South African shot a -5 65 on Friday. He had gone 33 consecutive holes without a bogey before he finally carded one of the 16th yesterday.
Even with his first dropped shot of the week, he led by two after the round. The man he has that edge over is none other than Colin Morikawa, making his debut in the Open. He dazzled with a 64 on the day, tying him with two others for the low round of the day. Jordan Spieth is a shot further off the pace while Dustin Johnson is among three players that are four behind Ooisthuizen at -7. Jon Rahm, who shot 71 on the opening day, roared back with a 64 and sits at -5. He might seem too far back, but it would be unwise to count him out. This one is far from over, as the weather can always shift at the Open.
