VIDEO: Hole in one at the 144th Open, Westwood makes cut, Willett drops to second
The America birdied the 18th as play resumed in the evening after a frustrating day for all involved, taking top spot on the leaderboard by a shot to leave Sheffield’s Danny Willett second.
High winds forced the players off the course after around 30 minutes play this morning, with many golfers yet to finish their second round.
Play got underway at 6pm, and it didn’t get off to a great start for Worksop’s Lee Westwood.
The 42-year-old double bogeyed the 16th, and dropped another shot at 17 to sit level par for the tournament.
He went up 18 knowing another bogey would see him miss the cut.
But despite leaving a chip for an eagle well short, and missing the subsequent birdie putt, he made his par and will join the 77 other players at even or better in the third round.
The R&A have confirmed that the weather delays have meant the Open will conclude on Monday.
Johnson leads at 10 under, with Willett one shot back.
Mansfield’s Greg Owen is currently tied for 25th, three under par.
Fellow Englishman Daniel Brooks might be heading out of the tournament, but he celebrated a hole in one at the 11th.
