Holmes and Lowry share lead as Fleetwood and Westwood push

Rory McIlroy may not have made the weekend, but another local hero Graeme McDowell drew plenty of local support and showed how it could be done by shooting a three-under-par 68.

His second ball off the tee went flying the same way, into the deep stuff and his next shot went left of the green into an unplayable lie that forced him to take a drop. The burly pair will enter the weekend at eight-under par, one shot clear of Englishmen Lee Westwood and Tommy Fleetwood, who are tied for third at seven-under. "There's no point in shying away from it".

Kyle Stanley says he was "caught off guard" after being criticized by a playing partner for not alerting spectators to an errant tee shot, and described the incident as a "non-issue". "But it's nice to get two rounds in a row", Holmes said.

"I wish the ending for me would have been written a little bit differently but it's been an awesome experience and I can't wait to come back here in a few years and play another Open".

"The last week has been a real eye-opener for me", McIlroy said. The Offaly man has a share of the lead going into the weekend, sitting on -8 alongside J.B Holmes.

"To play in front of those crowds today and to feel that momentum and really dig in, it's going to be a tough one to get over".

This day was all about McIlroy, who kept the sellout crowd on edge as he tried to make the cut after opening with a 79. Mostly, though, he said he was "full of gratitude toward every single one of the people that followed me to the very end and was willing me on". "I'm out there giving my best, trying to do my best for everyone".

"You can have that great round and that day where everything goes right".

"It's a little pain getting him through the airport sometimes", Holmes said.

Heat warning issued for the GTA for Friday and Saturday
Consider spending time in air-conditioned public spaces, such as schools, libraries, theaters and other community facilities. The average temperature in June was 61 degrees, almost two degrees warmer than the 20th century average.

Speaking after his third round Saturday at Royal Portrush, Stanley said his caddie, his playing partners and some volunteers or marshals all shouted "Fore", and he thought "that was enough".

The 2014 Open champion had left himself too much work.

But upon hacking the ball to the green the 2001 Open champion realised it was not his ball after all, which meant he incurred a two-stroke penalty and had to return to play his own ball. "I always felt like if I can get to Sunday and get in contention I can win. Hopefully, more of the same [Saturday] and see where it leaves me".

"I just want some time off just to get away from it", Woods told reporters. McIlroy lasered a long-iron to 10 feet and made the putt on the course's third-hardest hole.

His second-round 65 at The Open tied the low score of the tournament and riveted the fans at Royal Portrush who stuck around on a cold and cloudy afternoon. But he's struggled in the three major tournaments since - not making the cut at either the PGA Championship or The Open Championship and finishing 21st at the U.S. Open.

It moved Stanley and Redman to two under, just two shots off the group of players in joint-12th place - the first of whom Matt Kuchar was not teeing off until 2.30pm.

I can be very loose tomorrow, I can go out there and I've got nothing to lose.

Westwood rolled back the years with four birdies on the back nine to shoot into contention with a 67.
