The Latest from the British Open: Michelson remains in the lead through 2

Posted:

Phil Mickelson almost aced the "Postage Stamp," made his first bogeys of the week, and shot 2-under 69 to stay out in front at rainy Royal Troon.
   
Mickelson walked off the 18th green at 10 under and with a two-shot lead over Henrik Stenson, who had three holes left in his second round. After making the turn in 33, Mickelson led by five shots but the 46-year-old American bogeyed Nos. 12 and 15.
   
Among the highlights of Mickelson's second round was his tee shot on No. 8, the famous par-3 nicknamed the "Postage Stamp," that rolled to within inches of the cup for a birdie.
   
Mickelson was the eighth player to open a major with a 63. Of that eight, he was only the third to break par in his next round.
