Is Tiger Woods able to win the open championship?
Open 2022 continues on Friday as the second round kicks off at the Old Course in St. Louis. Andrews. Rory McIlroy (-6) will be hoping to extend his promising start as he bids to win a first major in eight years.
The Northern Irishman will hope to catch Cameron Young (-8) as the early pace setter, but the American will, on his Open Championship debut and just a sixth big start, face a new challenge with the extra pressure from his contemporaries chasing him down. . Cameron Smith (-5) is a little further back in third place, while world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler (-4) is also finely balanced.
There is work to be done for defending champion Collin Morikawa, who shorted an even-pair opening round of 72 while playing alongside McIlroy and Xander Schauffele. This grouping, which will experience the late start on Friday and will start at 14.59, is among the most attractive in the second round of tee times. Early morning starters to keep an eye on include: Dustin Johnson (USA), Marc Leishman (Aus), Adam Scott (Aus) at. 08:14, Tyrrell Hatton, Joaquin Niemann (Chi), Scottie Scheffler (USA) at 08:25, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Max Homa (USA), Tiger Woods (USA) at 09:58 and Jon Rahm (Spa), Jordan Spieth (USA), Harold Varner III (USA) at 10:09.

The Open 2022: Tiger Woods struggles to make progress in an unlikely attempt to reach the cut
Tiger Woods continued with an uphill battle to avoid missing the cut in the Open for just the fourth time in his career last Friday.
The winner at St. Andrews in both 2000 and 2005, Woods battled for an opening 78 and calculated he needed another round 66 to reach the weekend, a score he last achieved in a major in the 2018 US PGA.
A pair on the first was an improvement of two shots from Thursday, where his approach was to be played from a fairway divot and threw himself into Swilcan Burn, while the first birdie of the day soon arrived from 28 feet on the third.
Woods then three-putted then from long range on the fourth, and although his approach to the next one ended just a few yards from the flag, it was unfortunately the flag for the 13th hole on the huge double green.

The Open 2022: DJ joins Young at the helm as Scheffler misses birdie to stay at -7
Scheffler (-7) with no problems with the rough at 15, a clean iron shot seeping across the foreshore and into the recess where the flag is, it is no more than 10 feet for the birdie to come up.
Tiger (+6) at nine with a long eagle putt it is quite short, but he looks in a good mood despite his worrying pinch with the cut definitely gone now.
Hatton (-7) sneaks a putt up and over the mound on the 15th green, not to be too birdie, but the two-time Dunhill Links champion is right in the mix.
Scheffler’s birdie attempt seeps to the right of the hole, however DJ is a draw in the lead, -8 to 16.

The Open 2022: Poulter on the way
What a start for Poulter, the birdies are the first to reach -4 and four left.
In the meantime Fitzpatrick (-2) can not hold the green at 367-yard par four ninth, he is 10 feet past the flag from the back. But huge length from the US Open champion.
Scheffler (-7) crushes one down 15, but it sneaks into the whispy rough.
Scott (-6) admires his approach to 16, it’s a little too hot and runs over the mound, but avoids the rear pile.
Cantlay is four-under to six and makes it -6.
