Team America At The British Open Update: Round 2

The big headlines are "Phil Is Still Winning" and "Americans Are Looking Good" but let's take a deeper look at how good those individual Americans are actually looking.

Phil Mickelson - 1st place, -10, shot a 69 today, currently +200 to win the whole thing

Keegan Bradley - tied for 3rd, -7, has not shot a 69, currently +2000 to win the whole thing

Zach Johnson - 5th place, -5, has not shot a 69, +1400 to win the whole thing

Tony Finau - tied for 6th, -4, currently +6600

Bill Haas - tied for 6th, -4, currently +6600

Kevin Na - tied for 11th, -3, shot a 69 today, currently +15000

Matt Kuchar - tied for 11th, -3, currently +4500

Dustin Johnson - tied for 15th, -2, shot a 69 today, currently +2200

JB Holmes - tied for 15th, -2, currently +15000

Jim Herman - tied for 15th, -2, currently not available on Bovada's board

Patrick Reed - tied for 15th, -2, currently +8000

Ricky Fowler - tied for 22nd, -1, currently +5000

Some other notable Americans that will likely make the cut are Steve Stricker (+25000), Gary Woodland (+40000), and Jordan Spieth (currently not on the board).

The biggest threats to our national financial security right now are the Europeans, but there are some Rest Of World-ers that are lingering:

Henrik Stenson - 2nd place, -9, shot a 65 today, currently +250 to win it all

Soren Kjeldsen - tied for 3rd, -7, currently +1200

Charl Schwartzel - tied for 6th, -4, currently +2800

Andrew Johnston - tied for 6th, -4, shot 69s on both days, currently +420 (just kidding, +10000)

Sergio Garcia - tied for 6th, -4, currently +1800

And then I'll rapid fire some other people who will probably not win and are definitely not from America: Martin Kaymer (+4500), Jason Day (+8000), Rafael Cabrera Bello (+8000), Francesco Molinari (+15000), and Rory McIlroy (+1800). Rory is -2 and tied with six other golfers in 15th place, so having the fifth-longest odds is a testament to his ability to probably choke less than Sergio Garcia.
