Holmes Still in the Hunt at British Open

July 18, 2009

Turnberry bit back Saturday, but J.B. Holmes remained in the hunt.


Typical British Open conditions blew the field closer and closer to even par, taking Holmes, a former UK golfer with it. After back-to-back strong rounds to open the tournament, Holmes shot a 5-under 75 on Saturday, seven shots back of 59-year-old Tom Watson, who leads the tournament at 4-under. (What a story by the way, if Watson can pull it off.)
