There are also excellent aperitifs at Royal St. George’s on Saturdays. Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy, who are both too far away to really fight for the Claret Jug, will come out early and set the tone for everything to happen later in the day. Open weekends are normally pretty dramatic, and this one has all the pieces to fit in perfectly with the value of the past decade. One thing we can all look forward to this weekend at Royal St. George’s are windier conditions after the overturn Thursday and Friday.
Regardless, the last 36 in this season’s last major should be formidable. Oosthuizen trying to slam the door on his second major (11 years after his first!) And a host of major winners repeatedly trying to stop him from doing just that.
Settle in for moving day at the Open. It’s going to be a great one. CBS Sports will update this story with scores and highlights from The Open below. Check out live scores at the top of this story, a more detailed standings, start times for Round 3, and our comprehensive spectator guide.
