The Open 2022 Live Scores and Round Two Rankings: Tiger Woods runs at St Andrews

Can Tiger Woods win the Open Championship?

The 2022 Open resumes on Friday when Round 2 gets underway at the Old Course in St Andrews. Rory McIlroy (-6) is hoping to extend his promising start as he seeks to win his first Major in eight years.

The Northern Irishman will be hoping to catch Cameron Young (-8) as an early pacesetter but the American will face a new challenge in his Open Championship debut and just a sixth Major start as his contemporaries pressure him down. Cameron Smith (-5) is another down in third place, while world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler (-4) is also well positioned.

There is still work to be done for defending champion Collin Morikawa, who posted an even opening round of 72 alongside McIlroy and Xander Schauffele. This grouping, which will see Friday’s late start kicking off at 2:59 p.m., is among the most attractive in round two start times. Early morning starters to watch for include: Dustin Johnson (USA), Marc Leishman (Aus), Adam Scott (Aus) at 0814, 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 is struggling to make progress although unlikely to make a cut

Tiger Woods continued to face an uphill battle on Friday not to miss the cut at the Open for the fourth time in his career.

Woods, who won in both 2000 and 2005 at St Andrews, fought his way to an opening of 78 and calculated he needed a 66 in the second round to get through the weekend, a score he had last seen in a major scored in the 2018 US PGA.

A par on the first was a two-stroke improvement from Thursday when his approach had to be played by a fairway divot and crashed into the Swilcan Burn, while a first birdie of the day soon landed on the third from 28 feet.

However, Woods then made a long-range three-putt on the fourth hole and, although his approach to the next hole ended just yards from the pin, unfortunately it was the pin for the 13th hole on the huge double green.

Tigers (+6) on a nine with a long eagle putt it’s pretty short but he’s looking good despite his worrying predicament as the cut is safely gone now.

Hatton (-7) sneaks a putt up and over the hill on the 15th green, not for the birdie, but the two-time Dunhill Links champion is right in the middle.

Scheffler’s birdie attempt trickles to the right of the hole, but DJ is in a tie for the lead, -8 to 16.

Scheffler (-7) crushes you at 15, but it creeps into the Whispy Rough.

Scott (-6) He admires his approach to 16, it’s a bit too hot and races over the hill but avoids the back bunker.
