With a large following cheering him on, Alfie Plant pieced together a 3-over-par 39-34=73 during round two of The 146th Open, safely making it through the cut on 4-over 144.

World No. 392 Chad Collins painted a career-low bogey-free 11-under-par 30-30=60 in the second round of the Barbasol Championship to reach 15-under 127, good for the 36-hole clubhouse lead by six and matching the tournament and course record of Jhonattan Vegas shot in Round 2 last year.

This is the 38-year-old's 177th career TOUR start and 509th career round, shattering his previous low of 64 two times, most recently at the 2016 Zurich Classic/R2. If the lead holds up, it'll be his second on TOUR after any round. The Indiana native and resident was T1 thru 36 holes at the 2010 Puerto Rico Open, eventually finishing T10. Looking to become the seventh player in TOUR history to shoot 59, first since Jim Furyk fired a TOUR-record 58 in R4 of the 2016 Travelers, he carded 11 birdies on 10 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, gaining 5.145 strokes approaching-the-green and 8.388 SG: Total. Collins circled holes 1, 4, 5, 7, 9 and six straight at 11-16, finishing with two pars. His split featured nine from inside of 10 feet and two from between 13 and 15 feet, posting a stellar 1.313 putts per GIR, 3.342 SG: Putting and 23 total putts.

Ian Poulter pieced together an even-par 34-36=70 during round two of The 146th Open, keeping his name inside the top 10, arriving at the weekend on 3-under 137.

Playing through tough conditions today, Poulter found just five (of 14) fairways on his way to 11 greens in regulation. It was all about scrambling today as he plodded his way around Royal Birkdale, just trying to survive the bad weather day. His lone birdie of the day provided one of the biggest roars of the day when he drained a putt from 20 feet at the par-3 12th. His bogey-free streak ended at 26 holes after swallowing his medicine at the par-4 16th. With calmer conditions forecasted over the final two rounds, Poulter will need to turn on the scoring machine from here on out. The Englishman is still searching for his first major title, with his closest call come at this very event (and venue) back in 2008.

Round two of The 146th Open was suspended due to heavy rain at 5:30 p.m. local time, giving golfers a break as the ground crew rush to clean up puddling around the course. Players are being held on the course, meaning they should return to play very shortly. UPDATE: Play was resumed at 5:45 p.m., just a 15 minute delay.

Heavy rains arrived quickly at Royal Birkdale, shortly after a lull in the wind. Golfers played through the rain for 10-to-20 minutes but the rains became too much for the greens to handle. The grounds crew will now bust out the squeegees in order to clear the puddles. Earlier in the day, the morning tee times had plenty of wind to deal with but didn't have the combination of wind and rain. One of those morning tee times was Joost Luiten who posted a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in round two to reach even-par 140 ahead of the weekend. He currently sits at T12 on the live leaderboard and could crack the top 10 before round three if the weather continues to toughen.

World No. 682 Angel Cabrera withdrew after eight holes in Round 2 of the Barbasol Championship.

The 47-year-old was 5-over thru eight holes, 9-over total when he called it day. This is his 11th mid-tourney WD in 280 career events, second this season in 15 starts and second straight. Although there's been no reason cited yet for this WD, he exited last week's John Deere with a shoulder injury, 5-over thru nine holes of the second round and 7-over total. Playing this season on Past Champion status, the three-time TOUR winner looks to be headed to a third straight season where he'll miss the FedExCup Playoffs, entering the week 184th in the standings.

Winning the battle with the elements, Rory McIlroy twirled a 2-under-par 31-37=68 during round two of The 146th Open, roaring up the leaderboard with a two-day tally of 1-under 139.

McIlroy opened the week with five bogeys in his first six holes. He is 6-under since then, circling eight birdies in his last 26 holes, while swallowing just two bogeys along the way. McIlroy arrived without much form but his confidence is growing rapidly as he fist pumped on par-savers and managed the course brilliantly today. Playing in blustery conditions on Friday, he landed just 9 greens in regulation but needed just 24 putts, thanks to some superb scrambling. Today's 68 beat the field average by more than six strokes, and boosted him up the leaderboard by more than 45 spots. McIlroy posted just one top 20 in his first six Open Championship appearances but since then he's added a WIN and T5 over his last two visits. With his confidence growing, McIlroy is a very serious contender heading into the weekend.

Overnight co-leader Matt Kuchar survived the blustery conditions in round two of The 146th Open, managing a 1-over-par 34-37=71 to reach 4-under 136 ahead of the weekend, claiming the early clubhouse lead with plenty of play remaining today.

Kuchar swallowed an early bogey at the second but responded with back-to-back birdies at three and four. The second of the two birdies was drained from very long distance. From there, he picked up just one more circle while swallowing bogeys at 8, 16, and 18. Kuchar's elite short game was on full display today, helping him beat the field average by more than three strokes. Kuchar's fellow overnight co-leaders, Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka, are both set to tee off after 2:45 p.m. local time, so Kuchar will have plenty of time to enjoy his clubhouse lead. The 39-year-old American is still searching for his first major championship victory.

Zach Johnson made a huge move up the leaderboard in round two of The 146th Open, styling a 4-under-par 32-34=66, climbing inside the cut line with a two-day tally of 1-over 141.

ZJ opened his week with a one-birdie, 5-over 75 on Thursday when the scoring conditions were ripe. He waiting for the heavy winds to arrive Friday morning before making his charge. Johnson split just five fairways today but still managed to land 13 greens in regulation and swallow just one bogey thanks to some great scrambling. From a strokes-gained perspective, this is the round of the week so far, beating the field by 8.59 strokes at the time he signed his card. ZJ sits just outside the top 30 on the live leaderboard but that position will surely improve by day's end. The 2015 Open champion has top 20s in five of his last six appearances at this event, and now he appears to be back on track.

Round one action of the Barbasol Championship was called for the day at 7:51 p.m. CT, with play set to resume at 7:40 a.m. on Friday morining. Prior to the horn sounding, Zac Blair grabbed a share of the clubhouse lead after signing a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-34=65.

The cuplrit here was a 1 hour, 48 minute weather delay that took place just before 4:00 p.m. today. Blair wasn't dazzling anyone with his tee-to-green play, but his putter caught fire today. Throughout the round he sprinkled in seven putts from outside seven feet, including three par-savers from 7-to-11 feet. Blair walked off the course gaining 4.631 strokes putting. The BYU product has never posted a first-round lead or co-lead, so this would be a career first if this co-lead holds when players finish their rounds in the morning.

Martin Flores feasted on Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National in round one of the Barbasol Championship, firing a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 to claim a share of the early lead alongside Cameron Tringale.

Flores was firing on all cylinders today, as he split 10 (of 14) fairways and setup nine scoring chances from inside 14 feet. He converted on six of them while also saving par from 10'5" at the ninth to maintain momentum. The University of Oklahoma product entered the week ranked 151st in the FedExCup race, in need of some points as the season starts to wind down. Flores has previously led/co-lead just once after 18 holes (2013 St. Jude Classic). He would fade to T47 by week's end, but the field is a bit thinner in Opelika, Alabama, so we should see Flores keep his name in the mix a bit longer this week.

Cameron Tringale tore through Grand National’s Lake Course during round one of the Barbasol Championship, firing a 5-under-par 33-32=65 to grab an early share of the clubhouse lead as the afternoon wave takes to the course.

Tringale peppered 15 greens in regulation, but it wasn't steady striking all day. In fact, 10 of his approach shots landed outside the 30-foot zone. Still, he managed to gain 2.35 strokes approaching-the-green thanks to holes like the 17th where he stuck his 193-yard tee ball to just 2'11" for a tap-in birdie. That would be his seventh circle of the day, offsetting a lone bogey which came at the par-4 11th. On top of the quality (at times) ball-striking, he also sank a 58'8" biride bomb at the par-4 ninth. Tringale has two career first-round leads/co-leads in his career, with the latest coming at the 2012 Zurich Classic. The Georgia Tech product is still searching for his first TOUR win.
