Butch Harmon reflects on Phil Mickelsons impressive start to The 145th Open and warns not to write off Dustin Johnsons title challenge at Royal Troon. Charles Mann Jersey ... The 145th Open Latest leaderboard I think weve seen two very different days. Thursday was a perfect day where it was warm and the wind going out made the course a lot easier. We saw Phil Mickelson tie the Open record round and have a chance for a 62, where he hit a heck of a putt which didnt quite make it.The second round was totally different, as the wind completely switched directions and it was cold and rainy. Even with those poor conditions though, the golf has still been very good. Ten under par is leading heading in to the weekend, which is pretty darn good after two days here. For Phil Mickelson not to win this tournament I think hes going to need to have a bad round and right now I just cant see that happening. Butch Harmon If you look at Dustin Johnson starting out, his swing was a little out of sync on Thursday. He did some good work on the range with Claude while I was on TV and said he warmed up well. He started his second round a little iffy, and after managing to knock it to three feet at the first hole he still missed it.After that though, he started to settle down and got himself back up to two under. Hes a long way behind, but he still has two rounds to go and he has the tendency to get better each round. Get a Sky Sports Pass Dont miss The Open. Watch live on NOW TV today for ￡10.99. No contract. Hes still going to be there or thereabouts come Sunday night. The course suits him as he can use the driver when he needs to and can hit irons off the tee.What were seeing with DJ, especially since he won the US Open, is that hes playing with so much more confidence. Hes feeling so much more relaxed in his game and I think hes going to make some sort of charge on Saturday. Johnson birdied three of his final four holes I love the way Henrik Stenson plays golf and I think hes one of the best players in the world . It appears at times that his concentration lapses and that often hurts him a little bit over 72 holes, but he has handled the elements and mentally stuck to his job.Before it started I was never going to pick my guys as thats not fair, but I always felt Stenson was one who could impress and right now hes making me look good! Links golf will sort you out and if youre not 100 per cent in control of what youre doing in your swing and control of the ball, it will get you as you cant fake it around here.You could tell last week at Castle Stuart though that Mickelson, who shot 66 in the last round, was trending in the right direction heading in to this week. He did what you have to do in Links golf on Thursday in hitting most of the fairways and only taking 26 putts, which is what you have to do to shoot a low round. Mickelson impressed in the rain Mickelson looks awfully good right now and is in complete control of his game. I love that how he has really adapted to playing links golf over the past four years or so.Hes not trying to overpower the golf course and is really taking what the course is giving him. Hes putting beautifully and hes the most creative guy Ive ever seen play golf, as his short game is phenomenal. I think hes going to be hard to beat.For Phil Mickelson not to win this tournament I think hes going to need to have a bad round and right now I just cant see that happening.

"If we could score a six in every game, obviously I would be pretty excited," Jones said. "Its a long week but a short week. Its a pretty short round robin from what were used to so you dont want to get behind the eight ball early. Mason Foster Womens Jersey . 22 because of a bruised foot and have added forward Sean Collins to the roster on emergency recall from Springfield of the AHL. http://www.authenticredskinsfanatic.com/c-62-redskins-sam-huff-jersey.aspx . Five years ago, Nestor and Zimonjic beat the American twins to win the title. But the Bryans, the worlds top-ranked team, needed 74 minutes to earn the victory Saturday as both Nestor and Zimonjic lost serve in the second set.Two-time Horse of the Year Curlin and jockey Alex Solis lead the class of 2014 inducted Friday into the National Museum of Racings Hall of Fame. Joining Curlin and Solis as inductees are former champion thoroughbreds Ashado and Clifford, jockey Lloyd Hughes, trainer Gary Jones and "Pillars of the Turf" E. R. Bradley and E. P. Taylor. Curlin was Horse of the Year for 2007 and 2008. He won the 2007 Preakness Stakes and Breeders Cup Classic. He claimed the 2008 Dubai World Cup as well as repeating in winning that years Jockey Club Gold Cup. "I think how he responded to difficult situations is what separated him from anything Ive ever been associated with," said Curlins trainer Steve Asmussen. "For him to get done what he did in the year (2007) that he did, against a very fast group of horses that put up tremendous numbers; to have only started your career in February, run in all three Triple Crown races and then beat older horses with everybody still being around in the Classic at the end of the year, you just dont do it. "Not only did he do that, but he goes to Dubai the following year, wins the World Cup and then was one of the few horses to come back and still maintain a Grade 1 level. He built on what he did instead of chipping away at what he did." Curlin retired as North Americas all-time leading earner with $10,501,800 and 11 wins from 16 starts. Ashado was the 2004 champion 3-year-old filly and 2005 champion older female. In 2004 the filly won both the Kentucky Oaks and Breeders Cup Distaff. Ashado,, owned in partnership by Starlight Stables, Paul Saylor and Johns Martin, won 12 of 21 career starts for $3,931,440. Custom Redskins Jerseys. "Its quite an accomplishment for any horse or person to make it to that level, so were proud of her for being able to do that," said her trainer Todd Pletcher. Solis, who still rides, won the 1986 Preakness aboard Snow Chief. In 2003 he rode Pleasantly Perfect to a win in the Breeders Cup Classic and the following year rode the horse in claiming the Dubai World Cup. Coming into 2014, Solis recorded 4,938 victories for $231 million. Jones retired in 1996 with 1,465 victories and $52,672,611. He was a fixture on the Southern California circuit with training championships at Del Mar, Hollywood Park, and Santa Anita. "I was flabbergasted when they told me," said Jones. "I had been passed over a few times already, and I had decided I probably wouldnt be making it. "Its a special fraternity; not easy to get into. I idolize some of those guys: Charlie (Whittingham), Bobby Frankel, Billy Mott, Shug McGaughey and, of course, Buster (Millerick). I wasnt sure I was ever going to make it, but it was well worth the wait." The Historic Review Committee of the National Museum of Racing chose 19th century jockey Hughes and racehorse Clifford to be inducted. Edward R. Bradley and Edward P. Taylor make up the second group of inductees from the Pillars of the Turf category. Pillars of the Turf recognizes people who have played important parts in the sport of thoroughbred racing.
