A quiet Friday afternoon in the English countryside and a player, louis ostuizen, who lacked only umbrella and basket to accompany the picnic. The South African closed out a winning two-day ride with the lowest result after the first 36 holes in the 149-year history of the British Open, British Open, The Open, or whatever you want to call it.

Today Oosthuizen could have changed its name. Single bogey over 36 holes and 11 strokes below par for the course, two ahead Colin Morikawa and in relation to the three reincarnations Jordan Spieth.

Jon Rahm appears after six strokes. The calm walk does not go down with Barrica, who managed to sign the day’s lowest card alongside North American Morikawa and Argentine Emiliano Grillo. Rahm took 62 places in the classification, with a full chance of victory, six strokes behind the South African leader. Welcome to the British Open.

John took part in the Osthuizen demonstration on the front lines and, along with the defending champions, Shane LowryUnder par, three accumulated 16 strokes. It inspires you when you play an ace match, the Spanish player remarked just before revealing a significant change in his team. At the end of Thursday’s round, some dissuaded the Spaniard from being in his stuff, especially in his putter (Thursday was an unfortunate day on the greens), and once they got to the brand’s truck that was relentless. Sponsored to them, they found that the degree putter’s had been modified to them.

They went by 2.5 degrees, the normal standard for Raham’s putters, to a degree, a fact imperceptible to any human, but not to Raheem. Normally it is my fault but this time I can say that the stick was not right, he remarked. He made the change and the difference from Thursday to Friday was remarkable. Rahm’s 64 strokes represent the Spaniard’s lowest round in a Grand Slam tournament and the first time he has reached 17 of 18 greens in a major.

Something very serious will have to happen so that on Sunday Rahm doesn’t wander around the top posts. There were no errors and there was a birdie of courage and determination on holes 6, 7 and 9 and for the second round, where he missed shots on holes 13, 14 and 15.

The morning promises strong emotions, as only one birdie was achieved in the first hour of golf at Royal St George and the wind threatened to take. But the unpredictable English weather took an unexpected turn, the wind became a gentle breeze and the direction changed, making the second half of the journey more accessible. Sergio Garca Along with Rahm, he was the only Spaniard to make the cut and did it with solvency, leaving a -1 card. The Spaniard’s comeback didn’t go down well with two bogeys, but the 2017 Masters winner straightened out his golf to five birdies.

A particularly notable one on the 17th hole, though a bogey on the 18th, caused the last two-metre put to disappear and leave Castellan three strokes to equalize on the 24th and eight ahead of the tournament. Lots of work for the weekend.
