6 pre-tournament contenders who crashed out of the British Open

Lyle, who made his Open debut as an amateur in 1974, the year of Gary Player's third and final victory, was 60 in February and his exemption as a past victor has expired but he has not given up hope of appearing at Royal Portrush next year as there is a place available for the victor of next week's Seniors Open at St Andrews and he is in the field.

Woods was two-under on the front nine, but struggled slightly on the back, dropping two strokes.

"Just watching the board the guys weren't doing much this afternoon and I felt like, if I could shoot something in under par today, it would be good".

Woods will be at Carnoustie for the weekend, though, with the cut projected at 2 over.

Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas entered the week holding the top two spots in the golfing world, but underwhelming performances from both superstars left them short of the cut line of +3.

Woods hit a par 71 opening round on Thursday which included three birdies and three bogeys. That hasn't kept the casual fan from occasionally calling Zach by the wrong name. Knox had said Thursday, soon adding: "Yeah, obviously, I've won three times".

"Today was in a way similar to just playing golf at home", Fowler said of the easier, wetter conditions. "I've accepted that this is going to be, most likely, the last one".

But he is now in the best mindset to control as much as golf allows him to.

Fleetwood's last victory was at the Abu Dhabu HSBC Championship earlier this year.

"One of my main thoughts this week is just to let it go", McIlroy said. "I've been doing this for years, braces and bandages, just that this time it's actually visible", he said. He gave another shot back on the 15th when he pulled his second shot toward the gallery, though he made enough birdies to stay within range. This came after concerns about his neck - he was seen sporting two strips of black kinesiology tape before teeing off. "I may not play well, but I'm going to go out and fight", said Johnson, who is sharing a house with first-round leader Kevin Kisner as well as defending champion Jordan Spieth and a handful of other young Americans in Carnoustie.

After two rounds at Carnoustie Golf Links, the field at the Open Championship has whittled down to the players who will get to play through the weekend, and for the first time since 2011, the two top-ranked players in golf will fail to cash a check at golf's oldest major.

He still made bogey.
