The fourth and final major of the year has arrived, and hype is filling the air on the coast of Northern Ireland. The 2019 Open Championship rolls on Saturday with Moving Day at Royal Portrush, a famed course that has not seen an Open Championship in 68 years. With so many star golfers having already been cut, Portrush is proving to be dangerous. That does not mean big names are not lingering near the top of the leaderboard after 36 holes.
Despite a flurry on Friday, Rory McIlroy joined Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson below the cut line. J.B. Holmes and Shane Lowry entered Saturday as co-leaders at 8 under with a pair of Englishmen in Lee Westwood and Tommy Fleetwood just one shot back. Justin Rose sat two back at 6 under, while Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka are both three strokes away from the top.
Saturday was expected to be a tough one at Portrush as the R&A promised early in the morning before the action began. Instead, we have seen plenty of low scores with nearly everyone atop the leaderboard remaining there and improving their score to par.
