TRN, Scotland -- The Latest on the British Open (all times local):---60 p.m.Steve Stricker began the second round with 14 consecutive pars to stay on the leaderboard. The 15th hole changed everything.He lost one ball. He nearly lost another. He had to hack out of the hay back into the fairway, and then hit his next shot back into the hay. When he finally tapped in, he had a quadruple-bogey 8 to fall back to even par for the tournament.Thats mostly a product of the toughest conditions of the day. The gusts topped out at just over 30 mph (48 kph). The rain came down heavy and stayed longer. Everyone was hanging on for dear life.Rory McIlroy, who got within five shots of the lead, made four bogeys in five holes. Jordan Spieth was at 4 over par and needed a par on the 18th to have any chance of making the cut.---4:40 p.m.Rory McIlroy is making his move on the leaderboard at Royal Trn. So is Jordan Spieth, but theyre going in opposite directions.McIlroy made back-to-back birdies to reach 5 under for the tournament through seven holes, five shots behind Phil Mickelson and in a tie for fifth. It was his third birdie of the day as the wind picked up.For Spieth, it has been a struggle all day.He has hit only two greens in regulation and tk double bogey on the par-3 eighth Postage Stamp hole when it tk him two shots to get out of a bunker left of the green. Spieth was at 3 over. Not only was that 13 shots behind, he was in danger of missing the cut.---2 p.m.Henrik Stenson is only one stroke behind Phil Mickelson at the British Open.Stenson shot a 6-under 65 for the lowest round of the morning starters and is 9 under. It was the Swedish players lowest round in 12 Opens.Meanwhile, 2001 champion David Duval has withdrawn because of injury before starting his second round. He shot 82 on Thursday.---1:15 p.m.Phil Mickelson almost aced the Postage Stamp, made his first bogeys of the week, and shot 2-under 69 to stay out in front at rainy Royal Trn.Mickelson walked off the 18th green at 10 under and with a two-shot lead over Henrik Stenson, who had three holes left in his second round. After making the turn in 33, Mickelson led by five shots but the 46-year-old American bogeyed Nos. 12 and 15.Among the highlights of Mickelsons second round was his tee shot on No. 8, the famous par-3 nicknamed the Postage Stamp, that rolled to within inches of the cup for a birdie.Mickelson was the eighth player to open a major with a 63. Of that eight, he was only the third to break par in his next round.---11:50 a.m.Ben Curtis visited three separate bunkers and came away with an ugly 10 at the third hole at Royal Trn.All in all, the 2003 champion at Royal St. Georges had six shots in the sand, starting with taking three to get out of a fairway bunker after pushing his tee shot left. His fifth shot found the front-left greenside bunker. He tk two shots to get the ball out, only to see it roll into another bunker in front of him.Curtis chipped onto the green and two-putted for 10. The 39-year-old American wound up shting 83 in his second round and was 18 over par.Curtis was chuckling about his misfortune afterward, but said he wasnt at the time, saying I wanted to go jump in the ocean.---110 a.m.French golfer Clement Sordet woke up at 4 a.m. on Friday to text messages asking if he was safe following the tragedy in his hometown of Nice.In fact, Sordet was in Scotland for the British Open at Royal Trn, but his girlfriend, Marie, and her family were in Nice and celebrating Bastille Day when a truck plowed through revelers gathered along the Riviera citys waterfront promenade. At least 84 people were killed.Sordet says the tragedy happened about 500 meters from where I live and that its a really sad situation. I give my thoughts to all the families and to the people who died.He says his girlfriend and her family are safe.Sordet used a blue marker to write the words Pray For Nice on his cap for his second round. He was in the first group out for the second round at 65 a.m. He shot 4-over 75.---100 a.m.Phil Mickelson has picked right up where he left off in the opening round of the British Open.Mickelson nearly aced the famous Postage Stamp, his ball rolling right up next to the cup at the 123-yard eighth hole for a tap-in birdie.Lefty has three birdies in the round to push his score to 11 under -- five shots clear of the field as he approaches the far end of the course. Of course, hes coming off a 63 in the opening round, when he nearly became the first player in major championship history to sht 62. A birdie putt at the 18th hole lipped out.Royal Trn is now being pelted by rain on a cl, windy morning -- a far cry from the sunny conditions on Thursday.---95 a.m.The French flag was at half-staff after the carnage in Nice, casting a somber md on the second round of the British Open.Phil Mickelson began Friday with a three-stroke lead after shting an 8-under 63 at Royal Trn, nearly becoming the first play to sht 62 in a major championship. At the 18th hole, a 16-ft birdie putt lipped out of the cup, costing Lefty a truly historic round.In Nice, a large white truck plowed through Bastille Day revelers, killing at least 84 people in what was the third major attack on France in two years.Two French golfers were in the British Open field: Victor Dubuisson and Clement Sordet. The 23-year-old Sordet used a blue marker to write the words Pray For Nice on his cap. The French flag that flies above the grandstand at the 18th green, along with the banners of every other nation represented in the 156-player field, was lowered to half-staff.After a gorgeous sunny day with only a light breeze to start the tournament, the second round began under ominous gray skies, the wind off the Irish Sea having picked up significantly. Rain was expected later in the day.Mickelson birdied the par-5 fourth hole to push his score to 9 under, lking to take advantage before the really foul weather moved in. Soren Kjeldsen of Denmark made a couple of early birdies to get within three shots of the leader.---7:15 a.m.Phil Mickelson arrives at Royal Trn to a familiar question: What will he do next?He became the eighth player to begin a major championship with a 63, and Mickelson said its never easy to follow that up the next day. History would agree. Of the seven previous players to open with a 63 in a major, only two of them managed to break par the next day. Greg Norman shot 69 in the second round of the 1996 Masters, and Raymond Floyd also shot 69 in the second round of the 1982 PGA Championship at Southern Hills.Only one other person has opened with a 63 at the British Open. That was Rory McIlroy at St. Andrews in 2010 in calm conditions. Weather arrived the next day in the form of strong wind, and McIlroy shot 80.---6:50 a.m.Royal Trn doesnt lk anything like Phil Mickelson remembers from his near-historic opening round in the British Open.Some 12 hours after Mickelson opened with a record-tying 63 for a three-shot lead, the sky was lead gray instead of blue. The sun was nowhere to be found. Most significantly, the wind was blowing from an entirely different direction.And yes, rain was in the forecast.Mickelson, who narrowly missed a 62 when his birdie putt on the last hole dipped out of the cup, played in the morning when the rain and wind were expected. Mickelson said he lks forward to the weather challenge, and thats why he comes over to the Scottish Open a week early.Martin Kaymer of Germany also plays in the morning.Custom Oakland Athletics Nike Jerseys .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena.

Custom Miami Marlins Nike Jerseys . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U.EVANSTON, Ill. -- Bryant McIntosh sees the progress.The star point guard endured a losing season as a freshman and was a big reason why Northwestern set a schl regular-season record with 20 wins a year ago.Now as he enters his junior season, McIntosh sees no reason why the Wildcats cant continue their climb.The experiences that Ive gone through the past two years, it keeps telling me its our time, its my time, McIntosh said.The Wildcats are counting on McIntosh to help them continue the progress they have made under coach Chris Collins and maybe -- at long last -- lead them to their first NCAA Tournament. Northwestern went 20-12 overall and 8-10 in conference play to finish ninth in the Big Ten a year ago.In McIntosh , the Wildcats boast one of the Big Tens top point guards.He set a schl record with 213 assists and ranked second in the Big Ten -- ninth nationally -- at 6.7 per game last season. McIntosh is also the teams top returning scorer after averaging 13.8 points.I wouldnt trade Bryant for any other guard in college basketball, Collins said. I love the kid. Hes been with me since day one. He committed to us and has been there, and weve given him the ball as a freshman. Hes done nothing but get better and better every year.Here are some things to lk for from the Wildcats:STEADY PROGRESSNorthwestern appears to be headed in the right direction, going from 14-19 to 15-17 to 20-12 in Collins three seasons. But the question remains. Can Northwestern, the host of the first Final Four in 1939 -- reach the NCAA tourney?I think you cant let your mind wander to March, Collins said. I think you have to understand the games in November and December are just as important as the ones in late February and early March.ddddddddddddCollins thought the Wildcats were in gd position to challenge the NCAA drought last year. Losing forward Vic Law for the season to a shoulder injury and center Alex Olah (ft) missing time damaged their chances.PARDON HIMNorthwestern planned to redshirt center Dererk Pardon as a freshman last season. Olahs injury changed that.Pardon wound up averaging 6.7 points and 4.2 rebounds in 20 games. Now that Olah is gone, Northwestern is counting on bigger things from him.I think hes ready to take that role on. Alex Olah has been such a constant in our program the last four years, three with me, Collins said.LAW RETURNSNorthwesterns NCAA hopes in some ways hinge on Law.The 6-ft-7 forward brings the athleticism and all-around game that could go a long way toward determining how far the Wildcats go. A highly touted recruit, Law averaged 7 points, 4.8 rebounds and shot 35.5 percent on 3-pointers as freshman in 2014-15.TWO TIMENorthwestern needs to find a scoring threat to pair with McIntosh in the backcourt, now that last years leading scorer Tre Demps is gone. That could be up to junior Scottie Lindsey, who shot just under 41 percent on 3-pointers last season. Law might also be a possibility.OVERHAUL COMINGSay gdbye to Welsh-Ryan Arena for a while.The 63-year-old facility is in for a $110 million renovation after this season, with chair-back seats replacing wden bleachers, premium seating, wider concourses and updated audio and video systems.
