71 Players Get Through The British Open
With the end of the second round of British Open, 71 golf players get through and many famous players are out.
It is not fresh that Northern Ireland golf player takes a lead in British Open. But we are a little astonished that the leading player is not McIlroy nor McDowell. It is 42-year-old Darren Clarke, who was once the key player of Northern Ireland. Darren Clarke shot 68 again and so tied for the leading place. Maybe this time it is the turn of this old guy. Clark said British Open victory was of great significance to him. And he also noticed that obviously there was a long way to go because he just got through the second round.
Darren Clarke put from 90 feet far and got an eagle at the seventh hole, and made a birdie putt at the last hole, which helped hime take a lead. Later Lucas Glover joined his rank. Lucas Glover was the 2009 U.S. Open champion. He shot 66 in the first round and 70 at this round.
No one predicted that Darren Clarke and Lucas Glover would became the leader. Players who lead yesterday didn’t perform well enough at the second round. Danish star Thomas Bjorn got bogeys at the 12th hole and the 14th hole. He eventually shot 72, two over par, tied with Chad Campbell ( 68), Jimenez (71) and Martin Kemer (69) for third place.
From this board, we may see the name of famous stars seem to be less than before. World No.1 Luke Donald and Lee Westwood, both native golf stars failed to get through at the second round. It is very depressing. Also the famous Northern Ireland player, McDowell did a bad work today and shot 77. Unfortunately, he was out. As to another Northern Ireland golf player, 2011 US Open Champion, Mcdowell did not achieve the desired results. He shot a 69 today, two score of 140, tied for 19th place. He was believed the one who was most likely to win this champion.
I had to mention Phil Mickelson, who ended the two rounds with139 (70-69), par 1. He is also in the ranks of champion. Phil Mickelson is one of my favorate players. He is Callaway Golf players, using Callaway golf clubs. I am full of expectation that he will get a good rank in the following rounds. Phil Mickelson joined the British Open 17 times before, only to get a top ten once. So this time he intends to be adjusted to meet new challenge. Mickelson wished bad weather came. The reason is that he learned a new shot, which can be used to hit a low trajectory on the tee with driver and fairway wood. It would be more effective in strong wind.
The standard for getting through is 143, 3 over par. There are 71 people enter the next rounds. Except Luke Donald and Lee Westwood, there are many other famous golf players out , such as Padraig Harrington, Ernie Els, Angel Cabrera, John Daly, Ian Poulter, Ryo Ishikawa and so on.
