J.B. Holmes, Shane Lowry shared the top of 2019 British Open round table

The two golfers J.B. Holmes and Shane Lowry both scored -8 on July 19th, one stroke away from the chasing group.

The most impressive start of the second round belonged to Shane Lowry, with four birdies in the first five holes. Runner-up US Open 2016 then has two more acoustic pits to achieve -10 points after 10 first round holes.

But the two bogeys on Hole 14 and Hole 18 make Lowry unable to break the score on The Open. Ireland Golfer shared the top of the table with the same score -8 as J.B. Holmes, who led the first round and improved with five birdies and two bogeys in the second round.

Right behind Lowry and Holmes are two British golfer, Lee Westwood and Tommy Fleetwood, with the same score -7. After hole 11, Westwood scored a total of -3, but earned four birdies in the last seven holes. 47-year-old Golfer appeared all over the British newspaper, after repeatedly kissing caddy, and his girlfriend, Helen Storey in the end of the hole. If crowned at The Open, Westwood will be the oldest golfer to win major.

Justin Harding, with a score of -6 in the second round, rose 37 places to T5 rankings with Cameron Smith and Justin Rose. Harding with Rory McIlroy - who was cut off - were the two golfer who beat the best.

Besides Rose, Top 15 also has the appearance of many big names. Brooks Koepka thinks he should have scored a total of -10 if he got better, but the -5 after two rounds is still enough for the four major owners to maintain the championship status. He shared the T8 position with Jordan Spieth and Andrew Putnam, who all reached -4 in the second round.

Tony Finau, Patrick Reed, Jon Rahm and Matt Kuchar ranked T12 with the same score of -4, while Dustin Johnson rose 36 places to rank T18 thanks to a four-stroke improvement over the first round.

Disaster the first round, David Duval, left the tournament with the last place in the table with the score +27. The previous 2001 champion set a sad record, beating 20 strokes in the first round and becoming the owner of the worst round of The Open for 22 years.
