Dustin Johnson takes British Open lead as LIV rebels make statement



Former world number one Dustin Johnson shot a 67 to seize the clubhouse lead at nine under par on the second day of the 150th British Open on Friday as several LIV Golf rebels made moves at St Andrews.

Johnson, the two-time major winner who quit the PGA Tour last month to join the controversial breakaway Saudi-backed series, followed his opening four-under-par round of 68 with a bogey at the first after going out in one of the first groups of the day at 8:14 am (0714 GMT).

However, the American quickly recovered from that with no more bogeys and six birdies, including one at the last which saw him move a shot ahead of overnight leader Cameron Young.—APP
