Jordan Spieth excited about Open duel with Matt Kuchar

"Walking up the 18th, the last group Saturday of a British Open, having the stands and the people cheer, it's completely unique", he said, after suggesting to Spieth they take it all in.

Casey's last round in his 30s contained five birdies and a three-putt bogey on the 11th, but was a 12-shot improvement on his opening effort at Birkdale in 2008. In tougher conditions on Friday he shot 1-under 69.

"And it's nearly impossible to win in that circumstance. It's fantastic. I'm playing hard for them as well because they're giving me a lot of energy on the course".

"Because you're like, 'I can't shoot those scores. It's not possible.' And that's the frustrating thing when you think you can play your best and it doesn't happen".

On the other hand, a favorable draw can add pressure to perform, he says.

"That's some of the best golf I've played this year, maybe even the last few years", said Ramsay, who qualified by finishing second at the Irish Open two weeks ago and is making his seventh appearance in the oldest major.

Victory Sunday would place Spieth alongside Jack Nicklaus as the only men to win three majors by the age of 24 - he turns 24 Thursday.

It's part of his drive to emulate some of the qualities of Federer, who he watched from the Royal Box win his record eighth title at Wimbledon last week. "But I'm pretty much saying it was really, really solid all around". "If I'm mentally recharged, my swing is". Still, T8 and under par for the championship is a great spot for him going into the weekend.

His round featured four bogeys, three birdies and an eagle - the latter coming on the 15th hole.

After bogeying the second, Kuchar looked in danger of dropping another at the third but responded with a superb chip from off the green to bag a birdie.

He laughed at the memory at Royal Birkdale Wednesday, another who has realized the danger of bemoaning your lot and talking your way out of it.

Marriyum said that the Sharif family submitted two more documents in the court which were duly certified, verified and notarized. The prime minister directed that the facilities should be made at par with the major global airports in the world.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson escaped the halfway cut, which fell at five over, but plenty of major winners fell foul, including last year's runner-up Phil Mickelson.

Spieth called that long shot "gross" and said he noticed on the telecast that it was OK to be past the green, as long as he didn't wind up in a bunker. I was so in the zone, was trying to finish the round without a bogey.

Spieth is a two-time major victor while Koepka is fresh from his maiden major victory at the US Open last month.

McIlroy has a lot more ground to make up, five strokes behind Spieth for the championship and just one better on the day, but given his recent performances and the streak of missed cuts, even getting to the weekend would have been worth commending.

"That's kind of what we know about The Open and I think that's what people enjoy about the British Open; is watching the hard wind, the rain, the guys just trying to survive out there".

"I love links golf".

"So much imagination that goes into it".

I guess that 25-30 miles per hour winds is pretty substantial, but I feel that most of the time we play golf in Nebraska, especially in the early spring, rarely do we have winds that are under 20-25 miles per hour, with gusts in the 30-40 miles per hour range.

"I thought that I didn't get everything out of yesterday's round and I thought I got more than what I deserved today". It's not just a stock shot like it is in America. The two-time major victor chipped in for par at 10 before back-to-back birdies at 11 and 12 when most of the field were struggling just to make pars. "Over here you can run it up, you can fly it there, too, if you want".

And it is living up to its reputation early in the first round of the 146th version of the major championship.
