The Open, Spieth Remain Atop Of Leaderboards After Day 2

The leader on day two of The Open Championship? The same on day 2 with American golfer Jordan Spieth leading the competition through 2 full days.

Spieth followed up a -5 round 1 with a -1 round 2. His cumulative score through 2 rounds is -6 which gives him a two-shot lead over fellow American Matt Kuchar.

Kuchar was in a tie with Spieth for the top spot after day 1 but fell back the 2nd with a +1 round 2 at the Royal Birkdale golf course.

Another America, Brooks Koepka was also tied at the one spot after day 1, but on day two he fell back to a two-way tie for third. Koepka shot a +2 on day two for a cumulative score of -3 which ties him with Ian Poulter.

Tournament favorite, Rory McIlroy, climbed up the leaderboards by shooting -2 on the day and sits in 6th place with -1 for the tourney. Rory’s -2 was the second lowest score on the day. The lowest score of the day goes to Zach Johnson. Johnson shot a -4 for day 2, but sits in a tie for 20th place with a +1.

Dustin Johnson Leads After Round 1 At Dell Technologies Championship

After round 1 at the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, Dustin Johnson leads the pack.

But the leaderboard at the top is looking quite tight after round one.

First-Round Leaderboard

Dustin Johnson             66 (-5)

Kyle Stanley                 67 (-4)

Marc Leishman             67 (-4)

Sergio Garcia               67 (-4)

Jon Rahm                     67 (-4)

Four golfers are tied for second place at 4 under par sitting one shot back of Johnson’s 5 under par lead.

Johnson birdied the 10th hole at TPC Boston to get his opening round underway and converted a putt of less than five feet for eagle at No. 18 to make the turn 4-under. His inward nine of 1-under contributed to a 5-under 66.

In his eighth appearance at the Dell Technologies Championship, Johnson’s 66 marked his lowest opening round at TPC Boston. Johnson’s best result in the Dell Technologies Championship is T4 (twice, 2009, 2012). He finished T8 at TPC Boston last year.

Defending Dell Technologies Bank Championship winner Rory McIlroy birdied the par-5 final hole for a 1-over 72.

Round 2 kicks off on Saturday with the same pairings as round 1.

Dell Technologies Championship Preview

Dell Technologies Championship Preview: TV Information, Field, And More

The FedExCup returns to TPC Boston this weekend, but this time something is different.

No longer is the championship sponsored by Deutsche Bank, instead, it has been rebranded as the Dell Technologies Championship. The reigning champion of the tournament, Rory McIlroy will be present for the Labor Day weekend tournament and enters it ranked No. 43 in the FedExCup after beginning the FedExCup Playoffs at No. 44.

McIlroy had an impressive comeback at last years event after being tied for 67th overall after an opening round 71. But he posted a final round 65 as he was able to close and eclipse a 6 stroke lead Paul Casey had entering the final round in 2016. That six stroke come-from behind win happens to be the largest in the tournament’s history.

But this year looks to be different at the  Dell Technologies Championship. For starters, McIlroy won the FedExCup in 2016 and looks to be nowhere close to being able to do that this time around. The favorites heading into this weekend are the top 6 in the FedExCup standings.

  1. Dustin Johnson
  2. Jordan Spieth
  3. Justin Thomas
  4. Hideki Matsuyama
  5. John Rahm
  6. Rickie Fowler
