Open Championship Round 2 grades

On Friday at Hoylake in the second round of the Open Championship, Rory McIlroy established command of the tournament with a four-shot lead, thanks to a second consecutive round of 66.

It's not as if the other players on my board aren't trying hard to compete. McIlroy has just been masterful. With a bogey-free 65 on Friday, Dustin Johnson earned a place on my board and in the final group with McIlroy in Saturday's third round.

Meanwhile, Tiger Woods did severe harm to his career A average with an ugly 77 on Friday.
