PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland – England’s Tommy Fleetwood has the early clubhouse lead in the second round of the Open Championship on Friday.
Fleetwood made a birdie putt from 15 feet on the final hole to get into the clubhouse at seven-under-par 135 after rounds of 68 and 67.
He was tied for the overall lead with JB Holmes, who was still playing the back nine.
The two were on top of a crowded leaderboard, with 21 players within four shots of the lead even before the afternoon wave of players teed off.
Jordan Spieth and four-time major winner Brooks Koepka were among them. Both were at five-under-par, two shots off the lead as they played their finishing holes.
