Phil, of course, is American. He's leading the team of Yanks against the Redcoats currently, and whoo boy what a team it is.Phil Mickelson was SO CLOSE to posting a 62 at #TheOpen until this happened: https://t.co/7QLhJcs5Hm https://t.co/saqo7SFMSZ— SB Nation (@SBNation) July 14, 2016
Reed is -5.
Thomas, Stricker, Horschel, Finau, Johnson, and Bradley are -4.
Haas is -3.
Fowler and Woodland are -2.
Watson, Kisner, Leonard, Na, Moore, Simpson, Holmes, and Herman are -1.
The two highest-ranked Americans, Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson, both shot an even-par 71 today.
Overall, 19 Americans and 31 non-Americans are under par for the tournament. But 8 of the top 11 are our boys, so you have to love our +160 bet at this stage of the game.
