Mickelson maintains lead after rainy second round, record-tying 63 in first”

Steve Stricker ripped off 14 straight pars until the rain and wind caught up with the 49-year-old American. He almost lost another.

Spieth battled through the worst of the elements to play the final six holes in even par for a 75 to finish at 4-over 146. Then I was hanging on for dear life on 11 and 12 really.

Rory McIlroy is making his move on the leaderboard at Royal Troon.

"And obviously Henrik and the guys that are up there as well, they're going to be tough to beat".

"But I just said out there, I'm not going to let being on the wrong side ruin my mood or ruin my week".

Stenson picked up three quick birdies before the rain showed up, and managed a few more during lulls in the weather.

"It was ridiculous", said Justin Rose, who struggled to a 77 after shooting 68 the first day.

Tucker And Ravens Agree To 4-Year, $16.8 M Deal
The deal was agreed upon before the 4 p.m. franchise tag extension deadline, keeping Tucker with the Ravens through 2019. If no agreement was reached, Tucker would have been forced to play in 2016 with the franchise tag or sit out the season.

Jordan Spieth, on the other hand, is pretty much out as he sits on +3.

Monty and Paul Lawrie have both fallen down to +3, while Richie Ramsey is now down at +5 and all look very likely to miss the cut.

Mickelson therefore held a strong hand having reached the clubhouse at 10 under, two clear of Stenson, who was five under for his second round with three holes to play.

Henrik Stenson has played 41 majors in his career and come close to winning on numerous occasions.

Meanwhile, 2001 champion David Duval has withdrawn because of injury before starting his second round.

On a rainy day at Royal Troon, Phil Mickelson finally ran into a bit of trouble. He teed off at 9:14 a.m. and shot a 65, the best round of the day.

Mickelson was the eighth player to open a major with a 63.

"You've got to understand that some people get lucky, some people get unlucky", said Day, the world's top-ranked player and one of only four golfers to break par in the afternoon. He took two shots to get the ball out, only to see it roll into another bunker in front of him.

Mickleson's putter is dialed-in through two rounds.

"I timed it quite well", he said.

"It's the Open Championship". At least 84 people were killed. "I don't have another 50 goes at them...so I'd better start putting myself in position and giving myself chances if I want to make it happen", added Stenson.

Sordet used a blue marker to write the words "Pray For Nice" on his cap for his second round.

PHIL MICKELSON is still at the top of the leaderboard on what has been a cold and wet day on the Ayrshire coast. A birdie putt at the 18th hole lipped out. The forecast was for a lousy day, and Mickelson was fortunate to get in eight holes before a steady rain made for frustrating conditions.
