Don't look now but Rory McIlroy is heading towards the top of the leader board and even Tiger Woods is starting to roar back in Day 2 of the Open Championship. 

At 20/1 odds still coming into Friday’s round, Tiger Woods hit a ball directly into the crowd from close range.  He’s still in the mix.

From SB Nation:

Tiger backed up that bogey with a three-jack on the very next hole and was going the wrong way. He went from even-par to 2-over and was on the wrong side of the cut line. An MC would be a brutal disappointment given how well this course and these conditions suited Tiger at this point in his career. Fortunately, he got it right back with consecutive birdies, including this bomb on the 6th hole. This is gravy you can’t always expect.

Zach Johnson was topping the leaderboard Friday afternoon.  His odds were set at 100/1 coming into the Open Championship on Thursday.

But it is Woods and McIlroy that have the books most nervous.  Especially with Woods, there tends to be most of the betting action.
