The golf world is going to quickly learn the name Brandt Snedeker. The Nashville native is currently 6-under through 12 holes in the second round of the British Open to put his overall score at 10-under. Five birdies in a span of seven holes accounts for his rapid ascension up the leaderboard.
First round leader Adam Scott is set to tee off at 8:43 a.m. ET. Other notables set to tee off later today include Tiger Woods, 9:43 a.m. ET and Bubba Watson, 9:21 a.m. ET.
Golfers with ties to the Dallas area have not had the best tournament so far. Bob Estes finished his second round with a 2-over 72, putting him at 1-over for the tournament. Hunter Mahan is also 1-over for the tournament after shooting a 71 on second round. The projected cut line is currently at 2-over, but that is likely to change given the results of the day.
